Growing up in poverty, experiencing homelessness, and watching my closest friends die from making wrong decision, I knew I had to make something of myself. I've always had a passion for helping people, so I decided to gather the courage to enroll in college despite my financial circumstances. It was one of the hardest of many challenges in my life, but  I was determined to finish.
