Erica L. Blake

This video displays the foundation of who I am. I have been surrounded by love and support since I can remember. This has made my desire to give back an easy decision for my lifestyle. The projects I have started and the organizations I belong to are instrumental pieces in my happiness.

I am happy to share this piece of my life with you as you get an idea of who I am and why I do what I do. As you scroll through my site, know that God, community, uplift, mentorship, and love are my roots. Advocacy through storytelling, photography and writing are my outlets. I hope that you enjoy.
