This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 3 pages.

Selling drugs to students in my classes got me kicked out of my house, and school. I had no choice but to pack up the two bags that I had and move out of state. Being homeless, then moving away from my hometown in Fontana, California to Las Vegas, Nevada in order to understand my future and complete independence made a huge impact on my life. Before I made the decision to move, I was completely unintelligent about my life in general. Because of me being homeless and moving to Las Vegas, Nevada I now understand the necessities of my future, and I've learned through the trials during this time in my life what my priorities need to be. It only seems right that I start just before the big move that changed my life forever, when my mother and I weren't exactly on the best of terms. I started my early manhood by obsessing over gang affiliations, and drug dealing. Being from southern California definitely has its pros and cons. All throughout school I was very affected by my environment, and peers. I was in middle school hanging out with people who were far past the appropriate age range for someone who was in middle school. I had a cousin who lived in a city called Pomona; just a couple cities west of my hometown. About 30 min. east of L.A., Pomona was known for being gang affiliated. Being sucked into the lifestyle of gangs was inevitable if you ask me. Consequently, I started selling drugs and ditching out on school.
