It always seems impossible until it's done...
FREEDOM, HOPE , AND REDEMPTION...
Many times I have been asked why I do what I do... The simple answer is that I love my people.
As a teen I did not have a mentor, or positive role model. My mentors and role models were dope dealers, hustlers, and gangsters. Growing up I looked up to those I saw in the streets, and I wanted what I thought was the respect that they were given.
Growing up I made some terrible decisions I wish I could change, and I take full responsibility for every wrong action I'v taken. My poor choices lead to a life sentence in the California Department of Corrections.
While incarcerated I began to change my life. What ignited my desire to change was my then seven year old daughter. At one point during my incarceration my 7 year old daughter asked me to try not to get in trouble so that she could hug me the next time she came to see me. That small request from my daughter lit a fire in my heart to be a better man..... A better father....
