Well, today I am asking for assistance. My name is Tatia Little. The assistance is not for me, but for my son. He is a 23-year-old African American college student from Baltimore, MD.
He has excelled his ENTIRE life, but just cannot seem to get the break
that he DESERVES. I am not just speaking these words because I am his

His name is Fred T. Gaddy, but he goes by Freddie. He is currently in his senior year at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City,

life. He has danced, sung, painted, sculpted; he is a huge foodie, a
world traveler, and he is now pursuing his dream of having a career in
the Advertising arena as an Art Director. He wants to assist other
minorities who want to enter the advertising field.
