“The Amazon Rainforest is constantly burning in part as a solution to an economic issue. Polarized perspectives will ignite more flames of destruction as global consensus is needed for sustainable economic innovation.”-Bekkah Marshall, Eco Strategist (August 23 ,2019).

(image,2015). A quick reminder to check your data. I chose this data from 2015 to prove a point. I could have labeled it 2019 & I may have gotten away with it. Data manipulation is a real thing. Data manipulation happens when data is used to support a viewpoint or discredit an opposing viewpoint, with data being misrepresented knowingly.
Don’t be a data manipulator!

Hustle Stack Pray Repeat


I was born and raised in Hillsborough County, Florida in low income housing (public housing) in an agricultural city that functioned like a town.

I navigated two different environments at the same time. One was public housing a location of over policing, drugs & violence. While the other was the overall agricultural city that still held on to pieces of its Old South past of prejudice & discrimination.

Nevertheless through strategic hustle I navigated these environments to create a path for greater purpose & empowerment.

VISION

The Trek With Bek Project will create more strategists who can navigate challenging environments to create sustainable eco & water solutions.

It will require strategy, heart & eco savvy!
