“When I graduate, I pray I have inspired at least one student to never be defined by the odds. Always fight for what you want and never stop till it’s done.”
Moses plans to continue breaking barriers, making history and setting examples for men and women all over.
Fight For Equailty
If an already impressive background wasn’t enough, Moses has decided to launch The Moses Mbai Equality Scholarship. Moses is leaving a legacy at Texas Southern University and deemed it’s the first of its kind. With his selflessness at the forefront and humility aiding the fight, Moses is determined to let it be known that he stands for the equality of all.
The Moses Mbai Equality Scholarship was created to support students who identify as LGBT or who have demonstrated courage in the face of adversity and discrimination. The scholarship is an effort to further LGBTQIA equality and inspire others to act. Because of his passion, Moses wants to not only acknowledge his community but give back. The inspiration for the Scholarship came about because of lack of inclusivity the LGBT community had on campus. There was no scholarship created for LGBT students and that prompted Moses to be proactive and create one of his own.
