Many of you know her from the dance team at Christian Faith Assembly Church or as the cheerleader at Rancocas Valley Regional High School. Eboni finished her high school career in Philadelphia Pennsylvania at the High School for Creative and Performing Arts. During her time in Philadelphia she was an active participant in many community affairs such as the Philadelphia School of Dance and a varsity Rower for Philadelphia City rowing. She attended church at the Sanctuary Church of the Open Door and participated in various community service activities such as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. After High School Eboni was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease which attached her immune system during her first year of college at Texas Southern University in Houston Texas. Upon returning to her home town in South Jersey she underwent radioactive procedures to combat the devastating illness. During her recovery process she found her peace in participating in bible study and youth development at Christian Faith Assembly where she grew into her faith under the guidance of her grandmother Pastor Kathleen Harris and the Apostle Maurice Randolph. The support that she received from her church family, friends and community gave her the confidence to continue down the road toward a college education which she knew the Lord had ordained for her. She applied to Long Island University Brooklyn Campus to study Sports Science with a Minor in Urban Yoga. Eboni's Passion for health awareness and fitness was established during her years as a varsity rower however, after battling Hashimoto's Disease she knew that it was her life's mission to inspire and instruct others to live healthy and wholesome lives. During her very first year living in Brooklyn she obtained her Personal Training Certification and began training at one of the top gyms in Manhattan, Equinox. As her studies progressed she felt lead to move away from personal training and get more involved on her college campus. Eboni is now the active Vice President of the LIU Health and Wellness Club- "MindYourBody", the Sports Management Club, as well as the acting President of the Entrepreneurship Club, she is also a freelance health columnist for the campus newspaper- "Seawanhaka".

Eboni is a certified Coach Across America coach and a lifeguard at the LIU Wellness, Recreation & Athletics Center (WRAC). Since overcoming a severe autoimmune disease and becoming a student at Long Island University Eboni has followed the commands of the Lord leading her to prosperity and success in her ventures thus far. She is a firm believer that the Lord has called her to continue down the path of inspiration and guidance for people longing to live healthier lives. However, skyrocketing tuition, a lack of government assistance, and poor scholarly sponsorship has brought her to the point of flunking out. With your donations you will enable Eboni to continue achieving straight As in her course work and working toward her degree in the LIU Honor's College.
