Mr. Williams - Growing up as a teenager in the mean streets of Philadelphia, in the 60’s during the gang war and street fights era, I learned how to be accountable for your growing up. P.S. Mr. Williams is the father of the D.A. for the city of Philadelphia (Seth Williams)
My 8th Grade Reading Teacher – Who taught me how to read and spell words as you hear them.
My Mother – Who raised me to be respectful around adults and people in general, right from wrong, love for family and how to adapt when you go into the work force.
The Military – which taught me how to take care of myself, go to work, gave me 3 meals a day, how to keep my area tidy, wash my clothes, and how to be all you can be.
Ms. Bryant, Ms. Young, Ms. Sampson - These are women in my life who gave me the initiative to better myself in the work force. Ms. Sampson was also my financial consultant.
My Wife, aka home girl, - was there for me when I was in the “Lost and Found” until she claimed me, and taught me how to balance a check book.
These are the mentors in my life from who I learned and fed from their energy.
