I’m really looking forward to meeting new people, building new friendships, and surrounding myself with good energy. To tell you a little about myself … I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, and basically if you’ve ever seen “Boyz N The Hood” then you pretty much already know my life story. LOL. Joined a gang at the age of 14, survived 7 gunshots at the age of 17, and received 15 years in prison at the age of 20. Looking back at my life is enough to make my heart race … But looking forward to my future is enough to put a smile on my face every day.
I like to look at my incarceration as a minor setback for a major comeback and chance for me to navigate my life in the direction of success. And success for me isn’t how many businesses I own or how much money I make, it’s about giving hope to the hopeless and being someone kids in my community can look up to. For the past year I’ve been studying Trademarking, Business Management, and Real Estate so I can chase my dreams from the day that I’m released.
You probably can’t tell from my pictures (LOL) but I have a great sense of humor, I love laughing and making people laugh. I love deep conversations about life and some of the qualities that I believe make me a good friend are that I’m a great listener. I’m optimistic, I’m supportive, and I don’t judge anyone. Prison is a negative environment, and my favorite ways to escape are music, movies, reading, writing, and exercising. My favorite book is “Think and Grow Rich”, a book written in 1938 that is absolutely timeless. Favorite artists – Nipsey Hu$$le, J. Cole, Kehlani and Kevin Gates. Favorite movies – (I have too many LOL) – “Before Sunrise”, Breathless”, Catch Me If You Can”, “Boyz N The Hood” and “Above The Rim”, just to name a few.
Hopefully I sparked your interest, and if I did don’t hesitate to write me because I would love getting to know you. I want to thank everyone who took the time to read my profile. I hope to hear from you soon.
