     CEO And Founder Of Hope-4-Kids

Rose Braziel

I grew up in a household of 12 people, including my parents. Growing up we didn’t have much financially, but we were taught love, respect, and kindness and I can personally remember it having an effect on how much effort and influence my teachers would invest in encouraging me I had the capabilities of becoming or doing anything with my life.

Due to that, it made me start paying more attention to others that weren’t treated with kindness.

I carried those same feelings with me into junior high school but, instead of living in hurt or abandonment, I chose to try to make sure everyone was treated with kindness because I knew what it felt like to be looked over or not recognized.

I have been volunteering with the back to school event going on seven years now. Five years ago, I had another stroke that affected my speech. When speaking I know what I want to say but sometimes can’t find my words, but because I understand how brain transmitters work, I continue to improve. I eventually decided to start my own nonprofit organization. My nonprofit organization, Hope for Kids Foundation is to inspire today’s kids to be tomorrow’s leaders. Hope for Kids Foundation aspires to develop and provide kids with the resources to be successful leaders in their community.
