Thanks to Tionda Harris, I got to experience speaking to others about my own story. Getting a chance to tell the story of failure, pain, growth, love, and respecting my success. Knowing that I am not where I want to be, but everyday I’m moving towards what I hope to become. Telling them about my run in with the law, and growing up in a broken home, the streets I had to overcome, and how I never let it stop me, from reaching towards the rising sun. Damaged Petals is a shinning example of what we stand for and what we achieve to become. It’s true you can’t be whatever you want to be, but you can be good at something you want to do. So Develop your craft, dig deep for information, work harder than your peers, and never stop dreaming.
