“I feel like a man who has been asleep somewhat and under someone else’s control. I feel that what I’m thinking and saying is now for myself. Now I think with my own mind, sir!” — Malcolm X
I was born in a small town about an hour from Norfolk, Va. Growing up I remember the seafood. I remember being very sick, pulled out of school a few times when my asthma was getting the best of me. I overcame poverty by moving away from Maryland right after graduating high school and adapting to new cultures, new people and new experiences.
