GROWING UP MY GRANDFATHER TOLD ME BEFORE HE PASSED "THAT IT IS UP TO ME" I HAD KNOW IDEA WHAT HE MEANT BY THAT. MY GRANDFATHER WAS THE HEAD OF THE NAACP IN COLORADO SPRINGS CO. HE ALSO WAS A PILLAR IN THE COMMUNITY AND PASTOR. MY GRANDFATHER REV MILTON E. PROBY IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIN\D MY ACTIVISM. TO ME IT IS NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THE ABILITY TO MARCH, BUT THE ABILITY TO CREATE CHANGE WITH A PURPOSE. IT IS ALL ABOUT BEING INTENTIONAL ABOUT WHAT YOU DO. MY GRANDFATHER BUILT A LEGACY FOR THE NAME "PROBY" AND I LOOK TO CARRY OUT THE PURPOSE OF CHANGE, INSPIRATION, LOVE, HOPE, AND UNITY, FOR THOSE WHO ARE UNDERSERVED AND FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DENIED JUSTICE.
