Not confessing to being perfect or better than anyone. I've dealt with a lot of trial and error in my life from single-parent family, incarceration and health issues I've dealt with since a toddler. Growing up in the lower poverty areas where not many make it out or achieve many goals gave me the drive to not be a statistic and change the cycle for the younger generation for the better. I've always wanted more out of life so my intentions are to show anyone if you believe you can achieve with motivation and a vision.
