" I founded nonprofit Active Plus in 2013. Active Plus provides health and physical education to vulnerable communities in NYC."
- The impact Tarik hopes to share with others
" I want the world to know that there are many people in need within our black communities, and it does not take much to have great impact on a family life for generations. Volunteering for a local nonprofit and giving your expertise can sometimes be better than donating money. "

" Her grooming at my young age helped me graduate with honors in anthropology and led me to working with health legislative director in the office of Congressman John Lewis in Washington, DC. The internship in DC led me to working at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center while obtaining my Master in Public Health from Columbia University. "
