My TED story
Born to a 14 year old teen, I always knew I wanted better in life. I didn't want to embarrass my mother more by not achieving academic excellence. It was bad enough she was a statistic (black, not married and no positive guidance from family), so I used what I didn't have as fuel to propel through high school and college. I chose to be the Man I am today with the guidance and love of our Lord.... Today, I am just a messenger and strive to live a life of love, passion and giving my all to help others. Today, I am a family man and I am 3rd.
