My name is SF. Banks. My friends call me SF. Growing up with a single mother who cleaned houses and buildings for some of the most wealthy and elite people in Seattle, WA, I was instilled with a strong work ethic to pursue big dreams and help others. One night, my life was rocked by a nightmare when my uncle murdered my aunt and cousin in a domestic violence dispute. Our close-knit family was devastated. I vowed to do something in their honor when I became an adult.
In 2007, I opened the I AM Defense institute against my profound disinterest in working with youth. I AM Defense shows women and children how to protect themselves from attackers. Since that time, I have committed my life to the personal development of youth.
I am the creator of Camp Warrior King, which helps thousands of youth in the metro Atlanta area gain exposure to Amazingly-fun activities. I am the founder of "You Can Have IT ALL!" Youth conferences. This conference did its first international event in Uganda, East Africa before the COVID pandemic hit. I have recently launched "You Can Have It ALL!" Youth motivational Development Magazine. The only motivational magazine for kids of its kind in the world.
I am the developer creator of Team HoTT SAWCE. THS are cartoon characters that teach children how to believe in themselves using fundamental personal development principles.
I innovated the Team HoTT SAWCE Success Stacks. The Stacks are words and phrases kids should learn to increase their self-efficacy.
I am the author of 3 books: Persevere Overcome Win, Raising Extraordinary Kids, and Be Unstoppable Living Life.
A portion of all proceeds from my businesses maintains the "You Can Have IT All!" orphanage in Bombo, Uganda, where we currently support over 30 children with shelter, food, and school supplies.
