A MEN MAKING A DIFFERENCE

FELLAS: What's motivation in Work, Life, and Family? 

WADE: One of my main motivations is to provide hope, encouragement, opportunity, support, and guidance to my family and other people who need it, especially our youth. I want people to feel secure in knowing that they have someone who really cares about them. 

FELLAS: What best describes your personality? Will you say it's a Tiger, Bear, or Lamb? Explain.

WADE: 
I would say that I am more like a bear. I'm fine with just doing my own things, minding my own business as long as everything is in order. But when there is a threat to my environment, I can get very protective of my space and surroundings. 

FELLAS:  If there was one thing you could change about the conditions we face in Milwaukee, what would it be?

WADE: I would like to see my city become more self reliant - use our resources to build us up and invest in our children, businesses and schools. 

FELLASIs your glass half full or half empty? Since there is so much work to be done in Milwaukee, what can you do to ensure that the city reaches its full potential? 

WADE: For sure my glass is half full! There is so much work to be done in Milwaukee and I want to do all I can to make my city what I know it can be. I feel great about Milwaukee's future and I'm excited about the roll I can play in the success of this city! 

FELLAS: How does faith play a role in your life?

WADE: Faith plays a critical role in my life, it always has. The only way I could have come this far in my life is by faith! I have always felt that the Lord is with me, so as long as I have his blessings, everything will be fine. 

FELLAS: What was the last book you read?

WADE:  Hoosiers. 

FELLASWho is your role model/mentor ? Why?

WADE: My role model is my cousin Mark Wade. He has ALWAYS had my back and has given me whatever support I have needed to purse my goals and dreams. I always tell people that the best education that I have is from the University of Mark Wade!
