As a pre-teen, I already had started getting involved with a gang. The way that I was living caused me to make some bad decisions and so I ended up in jail. Through a series of events, I was brought to the school and God began revealing himself to me. I began to know Jesus as an individual and a friend, I no longer see him as a symbol. As a result of God’s work in my life, I  graduated high school and am now attending college.
