Cynthia, a native St. Louisan, has always had a passion for being active in her community and being of service to others. She was inspired early in life when she learned her grandfather, a successful business owner and respected man in his community, was unable to read. Although she was just a child, she spent many evenings with her grandfather at an adult literacy class encouraging, uplifting, and supporting adults on their reading journey. This rewarding experience taught her the significance of being kind, compassionate, and objective. As an adult, Cynthia routinely volunteers with several other non-profit organizations, community engagement groups, and is extremely honored to be able to serve her community as a representative for T.OT.E.S 4 Tomorrow. Cynthia is a married and the mother of three beautiful children.
