“Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” - Vince Lombardi
Living in the Uniondale community for most of his 20 years of life has been nothing short of a journey worth taking. Uniondale has never been a town for outsiders to sleep on, especially when it comes to the newer generations. Being a part of something that has the potential to be bigger than yourself is not something many get to be involved in and A’Driel is not about to miss his chance. Joining S.T.R.O.N.G. is helping A’Driel fulfill a greater purpose beyond just being a resident of such a great community.
A’Driel attended Turtle Hook Middle School and Uniondale High School in Nassau County, Long Island. He is currently attending Nassau Community College majoring in accounting. Attending an institution of higher learning not far from home has allowed A’Driel to stay connected to the community he grew up in and loves, witnessing the path into adulthood his peers follow and having the ability to have an impact of those not so fortunate. A’Driel hopes to be able to utilize his career in accounting to help his community by building their financial knowledge and resources in order to increase the economic vitality of communities of color. A’driel feels S.T.R.O.N.G is assisting him develop his helping and team building skills. Learning how to cooperate and communicate in effective ways will get you far in life, especially as a young person of color.
A'Driel joined the S.T.R.O.N.G. family in October 2017.
A'Driel is active in his church as a youth leader and is an avid singer.
