Through prayer, I was given serenity, courage and wisdom. Serenity helped me stand still and allow God to fight the battles for me as I was only a child and was not equipped. Courage helped me toqbreak the cyclesq and provided me with determination to qbeat the odds.q Wisdom helped me understand that the cards I was dealt in life are required ingredients for me to become self-empowered. In 2004, God revealed to me that my purpose in life is to impact social change on a macro-level, particularly with African American males. I have realized through mentoring African American males that the same vices that surrounded me two decades ago, still exist in their lives.
