Everybody has a back story but nobody takes the time to get to know it. When I meet people I tell them, I’ve been to prison, I’m on parole. Don’t just look at me and think that you know who I am because of what I look like. You have no idea about my story. You have no idea what type of background is behind me. What made me who I am or what lead me there in the first place because sure I’m smart and sure I’m not disrespectful and I know how to talk to people and I’m not the type of person you think you’d find in prison but I ended up there. …. Don’t assume that you know me based on what I look like or don’t assume that you know me based on how I talk because I can assimilate anywhere. “
