Starting his career in real estate in 2011, flipping homes found at auctions, Pasha has since been involved in over $250 million in transactions across multiple asset types. These include residential homes, boutique motels, the purchasing and management of large multifamily properties, and working with housing programs in vulnerable communities. In early 2021, Pasha founded Evoke Capital with the primary objective of helping others achieve financial freedom through real estate investing. His lifelong philosophy is what drives Evoke Capital to excellence – People First.

18-year old School Board Candidate, Raymond Adderley

18-year old School Board Candidate, Raymond Adderley
Raymond Adderley joins me on Gamechangers LIVE, from the studio at Florida International University's College of Communications, Architecture, & the Arts!  Raymond is an 18-year old who ran for Broward County's School Board, and although he didn't win it, he is a very impressive young man that has a tremendously promising career ahead of him. I had the opportunity to get to know him and his story in this episode.  Thanks to Lenny Nelson for editing this episode. Below is his Thank You to supporters from his campaign: "Although Broward voters did not send me to the School Board, I’m not stopping my fight for our community. Seventeen months ago, I filed to run for Broward County School Board, against all odds. I was sixteen years old and a junior in high school. So many people told me no, but despite it all, I answered the call to serve my community. I am so grateful that so many Broward voters put their faith in me to represent them. I ran for School Board because I watched my father be shot in front of me in Miramar, when I was six years old. I learned in that moment what it was like to be voiceless. Throughout the campaign, I have fought to bring a voice to the voiceless. This has always been about our community and our movement to make necessary and long overdue change. I am not going anywhere. I will always be your fighter and your voice. The past few days have proven that we need more accountability and transparency. I will continue to fight for exactly that. We must work together, as a community, to ensure that all voices are being heard. This campaign sent shockwaves across the country on what young people are ready to do. My message to young people across the country is this: don’t take no for an answer. Keep on fighting. I will be with you every step of the way. Although this race comes to an end for me, I would not have made it this far without the help of this amazing community that I grew up in, my team, my friends, and my family. Thank you to anyone that believed in me, voted for me, or simply showed your support. I am forever grateful." --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/gamechangerslive/support
