Devoted Mom Motivates Her
Son To Face His Fears And

Exclusive Article And Interview by
Kamau Austin with
William Inlaw and Tanika Inlaw-Chambers

16-year old William Inlaw's dreams are literally taking flight.  He is driven to soar high in his life's pursuits. For William losing altitude in his aspirational pursuits isn't an option.

Much of William's inspiration comes from his mom Tanika Inlaw-Chambers, who has challenged him to achieve lofty heights.  She has helped motivate him to ultimately face his fears - so the skies are the limit in his life now!  This has inspired the young man to propel himself towards his inflight goals of: becoming a licensed airplane pilot this Summer.

It has been reported that up to 40% of Americans have a fear of flying.  It is therefore, exceptional that young William Inlaw, not only has overcome the natural anxiety many people have of flying, but has gone a step further to pilot himself to actually embrace flying a plane. 

William's aspirations aren't just elevating him beyond his personal anxieties about flying but he is hovering above a backdrop of the rarity of Blacks in aviation.  According to the Chicago Times, and other reputable media sources, there are reportedly only 2.2% to 3.5% of Black pilots in the US.

Obviously, it would be a good thing for Blacks to have more representation in the aviation industry in general - and therefore a good thing to help see him succeed.  William and his mom Tanika, are looking to have him reach - the rare achievement of a Black teenager becoming a licensed airplane pilot.

Before you see the exclusive interview with William and his mother Tanika, we want to point a couple of things out.  The ambitious teenager and his mom are looking for other visionary people in our community and world to help them reach his piloting goals.  They are organizing an online crowdfunding venture and also a fundraising event with great incentives.

If you'd like to support William Inlaw, in his aspirational efforts to gain his pilot's license then you can make a donation or RSVP to attend his Special Take Wing fundraising event.
