Today I'm finally signing the final papers to get my first house. I really thank God and my support system. I'm a young black man from South Sacramento, CA trying to beat the odds and inspire. For the people who don't know me personally, what I grew up around and seen I could've went a whole different route but God and my amazing parents kept my head straight. I would've never thought I be seeing this day, my English teacher in middle school told me I wouldn't survive high school let alone college and since that day I swear it stuck with me, she wasn't trying to discourage me she was trying to wake me up and she did. I'm probably rambling but I'm just happy because I worked really, REALLY hard for this and I thank God, my loved ones and you all for supporting me. The devil can't stop this #BlackBoyJoy. Yee!
