Deonta's passion for the African continent and its development has evolved over a lifetime. He sees the current era as a pivotal moment where the international community must collaboratively act to advance the development of the African continent and its greatest resource - its people. In 2014 as a result of this belief, Deonta established The Foresight Initiative as a digital medium of exchange where like-minded individuals can learn, contribute, and engage in the ever-evolving development processes occurring across the African continent. Deonta is a graduate of Manhattan College where he actively pursued research on economic, societal, and technological development processes across the African continent and is currently committed to strengthening economic vitality in microeconomies across the United States.
