A first generation American, Hazel is a product of the New York City Department of Education system. Throughout her career, Hazel has given back to the Black, New York, and global communities. Hazel serves on the advisory boards of the Foundation for The City College of New York and the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) and as a fellow for the American Bar Foundation.

I try to expose our young people to the possibilities for their future by giving my time, my knowledge, my experiences, and my financial resources. Seeing someone like me, who once sat in their shoes, helps our young people know the extent of their options." See the full list: https://bit.ly/3JKAngW
