Terrell-Johnson

Terrell Johnson is a first generation college graduate and first generation post graduate from Hampton University and the University of Maryland, respectively. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering and credits his academic success to his mom’s dedication to his education from an early age. “My mother also suffers from a mental illness, namely, schizophrenia. As a result, my childhood and that of my younger siblings were split between my mom and my grandparents. My grandparents taught me how to cook, and I have been cooking since I was 14 years old – both for myself and others. One of my grandfather’s specialties and a favorite of my mom’s was cheesecake.” Terrell founded his company in 2016, and wanted to contributed funding to alternate treatments for people who struggle with mental illness; more specifically, an alternate to institutionalization. “These are mothers, fathers, kids, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends… family. The goal is to find more effective ways for people to heal at home with their family.”
