“I want my guests to see Atlanta as a magical city unlike any other city in the world,” states Maja. “Atlanta has an abundance of educated and third generation freed Black people living next door to anyone. Since I started coming here in high school, I knew Atlanta was a city where the possibilities were endless for me so long as I was myself and worked hard.”

“My one decision to attend college at Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University has changed the trajectory of my family’s legacy,” said Maja. “It has always taken one person to connect me with another person to change everything about a situation. All things are transferable, but one introduction, person and idea can change everything.
“We are purposeful in fundraising for educational scholarships and funding for homeownership – the two foundations in helping communities of color bridge the wealth gap,” she states. “If we do not own anything, there is no way to close the racial wealth gap.”
