“I want our children to be able to dream big just like I did. School taught me discipline and built me a path to dream big…

“Thank you, America for giving me the opportunity to create this platform and providing me with the ability to strengthen my talents and to make such an impact that I am making today in order to bless my village with a free education,” Blackson concluded.
