A Word from our Executive Director

“As a visionary, the vision never really belongs to me. I knew from the second it burst inside my mind that it was going to be bigger than my own existence. BCAI is the necessary ‘vehicle’ to destroying destructive cycles in this world such as violence, sexual abuse, victimization, racism, poverty etc.

My ‘why’ is when a parent comes to me in tears because their child is making friends, fearlessly freestyling in a cypher, or exuding confidence in other ways all for the first time.

My ‘why’ is when I humbly am allowed to watch a student go from fear to resilience; from self-loathing and sabotage to working on these ‘new’ superpowers they find within themselves. The looks on their faces, the fierce courage increasing and the family dynamics improving – all of this is why I work long hours for them, why I am adamant about protecting our familial village existence and why I will never retreat.

BCAI is not a building; it is a family and a legacy. Unconditional love and resilience training.

Thank you to everyone who has believed, still believes, and will never stop actively believing and investing in our vision and mission. You do not go unseen.”
