Review for Umoja Student Development Corporation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Umoja is an amazing program where I was fortunate enough to get the chance to become apart of. A little over ten years ago, I can remember clearly, seeing our current CEO Ted Christians walking through the halls of Manley with boxes of pizza and me following the scent wondering how could I get a slice and Ted telling me to sit in on a conversation and you can have as many as you want, which was obviously a trick that saved my life of course, because all the conversations from that day forward were only to help me better myself and pursue my dreams, throughout our friendship I was able to travel the Mid-west and Down South colleges and become apart of great family, I really am grateful of finding Umoja/Ted and Him Leading me to the wonderful Lila Leff and to have that extended family support that they have given me for the past ten years and more to come thanks for everything UMOJA!!!!!!!
