Housed: Folsom State Prison, California
I was having a conversation with my mother, it had been eight years since I have seen her. I was excited. I was catching her up with my accomplishments. I started college and had completed many classes to help improve myself. I was talking and talking. I noticed she was looking at me strangely. I asked her if everything was okay. She said who are you and what did you do with my son. It was at this moment I realized that my transformation had been extreme. This change is what contributed to me meeting the most wonderful woman, my wife. I am finally in a place where I love myself. I care about my future and this translates to my decision making. I am two semesters away from completing my Bachelors Degree in Communication. A feat I never thought was possible, now it is within reach. Life is what you make it and life is good.
