My Message

I am participating in the Victory Charity Ball to raise money for the Pinball Clemons Foundation Ambassador School Program.

The decision to support this cause was of profound personal importance to me. As a former at-risk youth, I left home at 16 and had to struggle to finish high school while working two jobs for meagre wages. I know first-hand the fight that some youngsters must endure simply to have a seat at the same table as their peers. It is a privilege to lace up the gloves in support of this cause.  

Born in Toronto's Regent Park neighbourhood and raised between there and Kingston, Ontario; I was introduced to Boxing at a young age and was inspired by our family friend and Canadian Olympic Boxing Silver Medalist, Mark Leduc. I trained briefly at the Kingston Youth Boxing Club as a minor under Coach Colin McPhail and eventually found my way back to the martial arts in 2016. I currently train under respected striking coach, Peter Montrait at Balance MMA in Toronto. 

 The Ambassador Program is an alternative school program designed to assist youth, who have dropped out of high school, to reengage with learning. The aim is to help them complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, gain valuable life skills, and successfully move into a post-secondary school environment. 


The program currently services 15 full time youth, and 4-part time youth, with one Teacher and one Child and Youth Worker. Students work at their own pace on academic courses and participate in a life skills program which focuses on skill building for youth to live independently and successfully. These life skills include learning the basics of cooking and nutrition, physical health and wellness, financial literacy, and personal life management.

Students also engage in community support activities, volunteering, and a program called the “SpeakOut” where they travel to grade 7 and 8 classrooms across the city of Toronto and deliver a “stay in school” presentation based on their own life story and life choices.  Ambassador Students have spoken to nearly 30 000 grade 7-8 students over the past 10 years.  The core philosophy of the Ambassador Program is that every student can learn, achieve their goals, and realize their potential regardless of their socio-economic status, upbringing, or experiences.
