Marcus Goodwin's Story
Marcus Goodwin's mom moved to the District of Columbia from Senegal. His dad came from South Carolina to study at Howard University, the first in his family to go to college.
His parents believed that DC was a place full of possibilities and with hard work you could get ahead.
DC gave Marcus and his family the opportunity to get ahead but he knows that his story is the exception, not the norm. That is why he has dedicated his career to expanding opportunities so more of us can get a fighting chance to get ahead.
