To try my hand at that and see how it would fee Its funny because I don’t look at myself as a role model. I just try and want to help people. My role models are my Bishop(Bishop Hezekiah Walker), Elder Alex Ellis, my uncle Reverend Joe L. Parker. All of which had some type of struggles in there lives but yet overcame, knew what they wanted, knew they wanted and could make a difference in life and did just that. Of course my wife Angelique and our daughter Jaelyn. Because what I do I do not only for this generation but so that my daughter even with special needs will always know she has a choice.
