My fear of not surviving, not making it, or not having it, was and is far greater than my fear of incarceration and that’s what always made me risk factors obsolete. This game does keep you shortsighted and tunnel-visioned, seeing the irrelevant things over what’s important, but life’s experiences are sometimes the best teacher some of us have.
Unlike many, I’ve chosen to allow nothing – not even chains – to hinder me from doing my best. My past is not defined who I am, therefore I do things today to make tomorrow what I wanted to be and not successful! I spend most of my time reading and writing; understanding that education is my only hope to never see prison walls again. I’m about to receive my associates degree in Liberal studies and am currently taking business communications.
I enjoy playing chess, looks sports, listen to all types of music, like to work out, addicted to CNN and I pray daily. I am an honest individual. I’m loyal and trustworthy, ambitious, observant and I do not last humility. I’ve never done any drugs and I don’t indulge in childish games.
I believe God’s greatest gift is that each sunrise presents another day to do things right. I’ve learned a man who is broke is not a man without a cent, it’s a man without a dream. Thank you for reading my profile!
