Good morning everyone! I just wanted to remind everyone that dreams do come true. I made a lot of mistakes in my life. During my teenage years I started using and selling drugs. My academics in school declined to the point to where I gave up on any hope of being successful through working on a job. I then redirected my energy towards surviving on the streets. As a result of living the life of a street hustler, I ended up going to prison. After serving a two-year sentence, I continued the same lifestyle. Within a years, I was back in prison for drugs offenses again. During this sentence a saw more than a decade pass before being released in 2004. I took responsibility for the many mistakes that I’ve made in my past. I have been on a journey to make the best of the rest of my life. I now work with troubled teenagers. I recently earned another college degree. Now, I want to share the news that I just released my first nonfiction book that is now available on Amazon in paperback format and on Kindle ebooks. This is a dream come true for me. I invested the last several years pouring out my heart and soul into this manuscript in order to make a difference in our society. The book “100 Years, A Journey to End a Vicious Cycle” is a true story of how my family wasted more than one hundred years in prison. This took place in one family because of the choices that were made. I understand that this is a problem that extended to our community as well as society as a whole. There are a number with multiple family members in prison or who’ve been in prison. My hope is to make a difference within my family, in the community as well as society. Many years ago I was told that my life was done. I am here as a living testimony, that my life now has meaning and purpose. I would like to encourage everyone to reach for your goals in life. As long as your alive, there is always hope! Thank you for reading this post.
