I’m Jayce Wright

I was born in Richland and raised in East Pasco.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a Black Trans Male. I enjoy mentoring at-risk and homeless people, specifically connecting with and empowering youth of all ages and backgrounds. I also have a unique gift of evoking emotions from the hearts of others and guiding them toward their true self. I believe that love will always win, and so I work to always lead with love and light.

What’s your favorite activity?

I love collaboration and communication with other powerful minds. I love awakening my mind on a daily basis and challenging others to do the same.

What’s your vision for the community?

I'm committed to ending ignorance. I believe this is the best and only way to end racism. We can un-learn the toxic things we’ve learned. My goal is for everyone to be able to live with all love and no fear, looking out for the best interest of our community. If we lead with our hearts 100% then we will truly be free, both literally and metaphorically speaking.

Who’s one of your heroes?

Mathematician John Nash. Despite his severe mental afflictions, he led with 100% heart and achieved greatness. John pursued his passion without fear—that’s a true hero in my eyes. We all have afflictions, and that's a part of life. He set out on a journey, and he accomplished it!

What drives you as a person or gets you excited?

Love excites me. Happiness inspires me. A better tomorrow motivates me.

Are there any efforts or projects you want to highlight?

Future Equalizers. Our vision is to work with both privileged and marginalized youth to bridge the gap that racism has created to divide us.
