Maria Williams, Director, Atlanta Speed Academy, 37- Initiative, Determination, Execution – In order to take a stand against poverty, we must all take an initiative to reduce poverty by getting involved in our communities. By not creating initiatives, we are leaving the reduction of poverty to chance. This global issue affects everyone and requires well, thought out initiatives, determination, and discipline from all parties involved. A well thought out plan coupled with determination and execution produces results – a reduction in poverty! How will you prepare to stand out?
