3 years in Federal Prison to recently earning my Doctorate!

My God! My God! My God!
I will NEVER stop sharing my story on how I served 3 years in Federal Prison to recently earning my Doctorate! I was a senior in college at the University of Central Florida. While most of my classmates were preparing for graduation, I was preparing to be sentenced! I HATED being in prison but I knew I was there because of the decision I had made. My mom always said, “If you make your bed hard, you had to lay in it”! Nobody would hire me when I got out of prison! Nobody! I applied for over 200+ jobs until finally I was given a SECOND CHANCE! I had the WORST case manager while at the halfway house who went out of her way to make it hard for me to get a job! Even still, I never gave up! To anyone that has EVER been impacted by the Criminal Justice, stay encouraged! Connect with people and organizations who will encourage you and challenge you! But whatever you, DO NOT GIVE UP!
