A New Jersey native of Caribbean descent, Candace has always been a passion enthusiast that is a person driven by the things that make her tick. She enjoys creating spaces for others to be the best version of themselves. Candace’s love for people really began at St John’s University, where she was an active student leader in a lot of major organizations, including Student Government, Haraya, The Pan-African Student’s Coalition, and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. It was during this time that her love for building others and impacting experience was activated.
