I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida to a blue-collar family. I have two brothers, one older, one younger. Growing up I was constantly playing baseball and football. In high school, I wasn’t much of a scholar so once I graduated I moved out and worked a blue-collar job for a year. After twelve months of hard work, I realized that the blue-collar workforce wasn’t for me and decided to back to school. At Saint Johns River State college, I focused on my coursework and started to become the scholar I am today.
