life experiences. It was through organizations like the Robinhood Foundation that Andre’
has reached his goals. Not only is Andre’ a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and A.F.
& A.M. Affiliated Organization, he is also a long-term member of his church. As a youth,
Andre’ was involved in everything from street gangs to petty crimes, but his strong love for
