I have made mistakes in my past, but I have never let my current situation dictate where my future leads to. When I got out of prison two years ago, I had a decision to make. It was the tragedy of my mother’s passing that really made me think about the things I needed to be doing and the changes I needed to make. I found my way home by mentally staying focused on the things I needed to do. I came home and joined the Cara program. Since then I have worked consistently to be the best I can be in any situation. At work I maintain high evaluation scores, have never missed a day, and am always on time.

Now I live with my two sisters, my brother, and my three nieces. My children are fourteen, eleven, and four, and I am very proud of them. They continually surprise me with their drive and ambition. My goal is to make sure they achieve all they can educationally. My personal goal is to obtain my GED, and after that to further my education. I like to work with my hands, so I would like to learn a trade, and to get a CDL license.
