Hometown: Atlanta, GA

Why He’s Here: Around 8th grade, I started experimenting with drugs. I soon became addicted and resorted to stealing in order to fund my habit. By the time I was in high-school, I my drug use had escalated and my life revolved entirely around it. I started skipping school and was suspended multiple times. Eventually I was arrested and found myself facing serious charges. I was given probation and community service, but I didn’t change my ways. Soon, I was in trouble again and was placed at Paul Anderson Youth Home.

Turning Point: About a month after I came to PAYH, I started to realize how serious my problem had been. In fact, I really should have been dead. I decided that I needed to take advantage of this opportunity to turn my life around before it was too late.

What He’s Looking Forward to the Most: I’m looking forward to leaving the rest of the riders in the dust.
