I grew up in California until I was about 6 years old. My parents split up and my mom and I moved to Illinois.? While my parents were dealing with their situation, I lived with my Grandmother. I have 4 siblings, 2 brothers & 2 sisters. One brother and one sister on each side. I had it hard being the oldest. I helped with my siblings the best I could.
I started sports when I was young, but also started playing with the wrong group. I jumped off the porch and ruined my chances of having a football career. I started selling drugs & guns and got locked up for it. I had to do some time at a juvenile house/boot camp, then I ended up going to juvie from there. I turned 18 and got released from juvie. I ended up getting a good job and my own place. I lost my job to an injury then fell off track. I started to hang out with the wrong people as before, lost my home, then ended up where I am now.
