Supporting Incarcerated Lives
By running my social enterprise Designed Conviction, I am able to impact lives and help a population of individuals that are often forgotten.
Designed Conviction the Magazine was born out of my husband’s needs to do something positive and meaningful of his life, while serving LWOP. Together we came with this great idea of creating a positive platform for the incarcerated.

When the architects of this republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, there was a promise that all Americans would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Our prison systems have become the opposite. They have reclassified these incarcerated individuals as second-class citizens and denied them the right to proper care, rehabilitation, and sentencing guidelines that are supported by science and facts rather than just gut and feelings.
But we refuse to believe that nothing can be done. We refuse to define all of them as monsters that cannot rehabilitate. We choose to believe society should be accountable as part of the problem. Many of them were victims before the crime even happened. Mental illness, broken homes, poverty, and drug addiction are on the rise, and we cannot deny that these factors have a direct relationship to the mass incarceration of this country.
