I don't know most most every kid on my the block I grew up I still go there now I'm the only one that made it to college the rest have are either in jail or just got out so overcoming my environment was I don't even know how to explain it it was just huge for me because you know when when you grow up in a neighborhood and you you have friends and you know then you start exceeding in school and they don't you don't really hang out with them as much and then you notice that you kind of looked at as an outsider and some people might want to you know participate in some of the activities they're doing just because they feel like they have to prove who they are I saw what I wanted to do I knew what I wanted to do and I knew what I didn't want to become so I just had to stay focused on what on the future rather than what's going on now
