Suleky: While attending City College of New York. A group I attended for bible study, encouraged me to consider event coordinating. They said I had a creative and logical eye. I helped with tons of fun events for outreach on campus. The bible study leaders and even non believers said maybe I should look into studying coordinating more even though I was an education major.
KingdomSoldNYC:As you go though struggles , how does being a Christian play a role in those situations?
Suleky:Man! It is the only reason I get through. My focus on Jesus has allowed me to overcome so much in the business, personal life, and applying the word in every aspect. Also my daily prayer is "How am I being a witness?"
