As a young child growing up in the hood (ghetto), reflect on what you saw right outside your door,most of us will have the same answers. Drugs, death, prostitution, gang violence, and single parent households are all some of us knew, and for most of us, its all we will ever know. Getting stuck in the “dysfunctional cycle” is very easy to do, because you get use to “hustling”to survive. By the time you realize that there is something bigger out there, your already preparing for retirement, and what memories have you created to reflect on?(None) Being Products of the Ghetto, is not a tragedy its a badge of honor, it shows that we not only survived but succeeded, so now its up to us to help the next generation do the same. That “Crab in the Bucket” mentality has no place in our organization, if we work together to work independently, we can all thrive!
Not all stories have the same beginning, middle, or end, but that’s what makes them unique.
Two beings coexisting on different sides of the spectrum, discovered that the have the same vision, but completely different approaches. One is direct while the other, just flows in the wind, some people may see this as a problem, however we see it as the perfect mix of dark and light. The way we work is by knowing our strengths and weaknesses, so there is no “one leader”, we both take turns leading the vision. Even though we may not always agree on some things, we are still able to produce the goal we both desire. We both understand that the world is bigger than the two of us, so why waste precious minutes fighting over dominant roles?
