Andrae is a first-generation American of Grenadian heritage. He grew up in New York City, where he entered the Gifted and Talented program, received a rigorous education, and participated in the Fresh Air Fund.
These opportunities served as the roots for his future endeavors working with Mariah Carey as an ambassador for the Fresh Air Fund and as a student at Howard University. While at Howard University, he commuted back to New York City to intern for a Council member where he grew up.
After graduation, Andrae served several nonprofits focused on youth programming like Oasis Children and Good Shepherd Services. He worked to open up more opportunities and unlock the potential for children like himself. He was recognized as a strong community leader for listening to people to identify their needs. Time and again, he has defied the odds by building programs from scratch to address those needs.
Today, Andrae lives with his family in Mount Vernon, where he recently graduated with a Master's Degree in Public Administration from Long Island University. Andrae laid down roots in Mount Vernon and considers the City to be the jewel of Westchester.
He is running to serve the 89th Assembly District and is committed to ensuring everyone who lives here gets the quality of life they deserve.
