Why iStandAbove

Everyone has a faint idea of what they want to be when they get older, but unlike everyone else, I couldn’t just place a hand on where I thought I would belong. Until I met a humble and intelligent homeless child in Ghana who changed my entire understanding of who I was and what I was destined to do in life. Because I have a passion for making a difference in the community and in peoples’ lives, I realized, I had to be able to align my self with people and an organization that is solely geared to making that same stride. This is why iStand above.
