When I was born my mother was struggling with a drug addiction and a drinking problem.I was born drug addicted and needed extra care. My Uncle and Aunt took me and my sister in and raised us as if we were their own.Growing up we learned how important education was and staying active and not following the crowd but being a leader. We were always active with sports and never had a gaming console.I was not close to my mother through out the years, but as I got older we have gotten closer an closer, and I learned not to blame her for the decisions she chose to make. My plan in life is to help others make the right decisions in there life from the inside out.
