 “People tend to lend the very best of themselves when they feel leaders are passionate about them and their environment,” she said.

She created the foundation in the name of her late husband, Donald Davis, who envisioned building a legacy!

Kiko Davis is a supporter of great causes and organizations such as the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and many other organizations that serve the community.

“Do not be afraid to fail. In fact, fail as much as you can. With each failure will come a valuable lesson that will be impossible for someone to teach you. With each lesson, you will gain wisdom, perseverance and strength. You will rarely meet a successful person who has not failed many times,” she said on Rolling Out.
