In 1996 the term Information Highway popped into my existence. The stock market hadn't broken 10,000 but was climbing. Y2K was coming we'd survive it but didn't know it yet. The 90's was coming to an end, and I had an impending sense of doom. The Information Highway was coming, WAS HERE. and I didn't know how to turn on a computer.
I knew 2 things. Highways are built to pass over people...quickly, and that I was missing out. Stuck as a coffee shop manager with very little hope for more.
Thanks to a program in Delaware sponsored by Joe Biden & in conjunction with Computer Aid Inc. I was selected for a 6-week MS Office training course that would change my life. I quickly went from stocking shelves to owning stock. This group is my "give back" to my community, my form of ministry to God thru Science, my Bakari: “fulfilling of the noble promise” to find ways to provide a foot in the digital door for anyone willing to enter.
