Despite everything, Dexter doesn’t regret his challenges, “My journey was really hard, but worth it. I’ve been able to help so many people. The brotherhood and sisterhood of Back on My Feet is just incredible. Five years ago, I came to Back on My Feet, and still I have a real team behind me all the time. It’s a real family.”
Since joining Back on My Feet, Dexter has been granted asylum, purchased a house, and now works as a hiring manager for a national healthcare company. He has also dedicated his life to lifting up others, working part-time as an EMT and volunteering with Caribbean Equality Project, an organization that advocates for LGBTQIA+ black and brown Caribbean persons.
Dexter boldly empowers others every day, helping those seeking asylum in the U.S. with documentation, housing, and their careers.
