“It was an inspiring experience to participate in an informal lunch discussion with Tayo, who so easily ties together the issues of prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination bridging cultural differences with innovative ideas of communication. Leaving the room assured by Tayo that there’s no excuses not to take action, and every single individual has the power to create change and make a difference.”
