My name is Daveia and I am so grateful to my civil rights heroes for making it possible for me to get a solid education. With my master's degree in graphic communications management, I now run a thriving business, which is a realization of my own dream, that so happens to bring a smile and a sense of pride to so many others. #IAmTheDream

#IAmTheDream I stand on the shoulders of Civil Rights leaders because of so many things. I am a woman, who through all my mess, was able to become a minister. At one point in time female preachers were not encouraged or accepted. I am able to pursue my education in social work, while building my own business. I stand on the shoulders of those who fought for my civil rights simply because I live. And live with passion. So I serve the community with the same zeal that was used to fight for me.

#iamthedream because of the men and women who fought tirelessly in the civil rights movement I was able to go to a school with every race the entire time I have been in school. My family received another graduate last year and as you can see my mom couldn't have been happier!

I was able to go to undergrad and grad school on mainly scholarships based on my near straight A average and the color of my skin #imaginethat. Thank you heroes of the civil rights movement. Thought of you every time I thought it was too much...#Iamthedream
