“Statistics show that black teens are 10 times more likely to die from gun violence than white teens. Whether the cause is homicide, law enforcement, or accidental, they are still dying. Unfortunately, I witnessed this epidemic way too close to home.  My older brother fell victim to this statistic.  Although life hit me hard, I strongly refused to fall victim to being another statistic.  Then, there was the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club. This Club changed my life. They helped me realize my real potential, and through that, I have become a leader in many ways.”

 

See Tair compete for the 2019 Delaware Youth of the Year title on April 11.
