The photo that I’m holding is of youth from my community in Philadelphia. I work to empower these young ones to create a right livelihood based on their talents. Ultimately, to be most successful, they need a clean and healthy environment in which to live out their dreams, and I am proud to fight for it on their behalf.

Clean Air Ambassador | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I believe air pollution is a threat to humanity because it causes global warming, and plays a vital role in many of the diseases that humans have. As Founder and CEO of the DollarBoyz, a massive youth-led movement that attracts youth from all over the world, creating a positive force for change is essential to me. I spend the majority of my life carrying out the goals of the DollarBoyz, which are mainly to inspire youth to create their own businesses, based around their talents.

My motto is: "I believe nothing is impossible, therefore I continue to prove the impossible, possible!" And my inspiration is the hundreds of thousands of youth I serve throughout the world. It is very unfair for them to be brought up in unsafe conditions.

Based on my research, cars are one of the most contributing factors to air pollution; therefore, I think the best Congress, President Obama, and the EPA can do is clean up the fuel we put into our vehicles, as well as pass stronger toxic chemical standards to limit the diseases we incur that are caused by and impacted by air pollution.

It is more than an honor to be a part of 50 States United for Healthy Air as a representative of my state fighting for clean air. And I know I will be a part of a community of individuals and organizations who are deeply passionate about fighting for clean air and healthier living environments. We are fighting for our lives!

50 States United For Healthy Air

Clean air should be a fundamental right. Air pollution causes asthma attacks, lung disease, and even death. But our bodies don't have to be the dumping ground for dirty industries.

The technology to dramatically reduce harmful air pollution is available today, and major polluters should be required to use it.

Clean Air Ambassadors from every state are sending a powerful message: Everyone has a right to breathe clean, healthy air.

It’s time Congress and the EPA used their ears to help our lungs.
