Years later, I became an entrepreneur and opened up a retail store named Dakota Logan, selling Urban Wear to NFL players like Super Bowl Champ, Ray Lewis, Hall of Fame Recipient Edgerrin James, amongst many.

Leadership and servanthood are very important to me, and have led me to become active in my community.
