She ensured the women enrolled in her sewing course was taught how to sew and was giving the tools needed to flourish in the community.

Robin truly has a heart for the people and has dedicated her life to serving others.

She now has decided to answer a higher calling and has set her sights on becoming the Mayor of Houston, Texas.
