Duke of Quils

I was born in Brooklyn, New York, USA, raised by my mom, aunt, and great grandmother - My Three Angels I call them because they made sure anything I wanted or any dream I had they would do their best to give it to me. It’s because of them I fight for my dream; they never gave up on me so I won’t give up on my goals. I wasn't a problem child; I was an ordinary person with dreams of being a lawyer until I got to college. I attended Onandaga Community College in Syracuse, New York, where I was perfect in my Criminal Justice classes and also perfect in English. Sadly, the more I learned about the steps to be a lawyer the more I moved away from it.

I am not a person to give up but I’m not gonna take out loans on top of loans and ask my three angels to help me when they have already done so much. So, I live in Syracuse now in my own place, working two jobs to fight for my dream as a writer. Sales are slow, but the goal in the end is when I write a check and tell my great grandmother "with this check I will pay off the mortgage", the look on her face I know will be one to remember. I’m fighting and I can’t stop for a dream I know I will reach.
