I want to help my community college students who are in need.
I want them to know that I care and I am there for them.
And when my students need money, I am the one who helps them.
I also want to tell them about my experience as a former inmate.
When I was released from prison, I had a lot of troubles in my life.
I had drug problems, I was homeless, and I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
I was a mess.
I started getting in trouble with my mom and dad.
When they found out I was bipolar, they told me to get help.
They said, “You need to get treatment, and it will be here.”
But I couldn’t find the money.
I ended up in the hospital.
I couldn, and when I got out, I found myself in a place where I didn’t belong.
I didn`t know how to navigate the world.
I needed help.
And the community college that I was attending was not there to help me.
So, I decided to help them.
So I started asking around and looking for help.
I talked to a lot people, including my family.
And they said, `You should help.’
And that`s when I knew that I needed to start getting my life together.
So what do you do?
And what do I do?
What I`m trying to do with my community is make sure that my students get what they need, and that they can go to college and have a good education.
And, at the same time, I want my community to know what I`ve been through.
And that is how I`ll be serving them.
My community college experience was a wake up call to me, to me as a person.
I know that what I did was wrong.
But what I also know is that I am not a monster.
I am human.
And I know what the world is like.
So the people that I meet, the people I work with, the mentors, the counselors, the tutors, they are not bad people.
They are good people.
And so, if I can serve them, if my students can go into the world and be good people, I`d be happy.
And if I don`t, they can stay in my head, in my world, in the prison.
So when I was in the jail, I couldn`t see my community for what it is.
So it was hard to find my community.
So my community needs to be aware of what they are dealing with.
And then when I get out of prison, we need to see what they have gone through and we can work together to help that community get back on its feet.
And hopefully they will be able to be better citizens.
And for me, I see it as a stepping stone.
I see a lot more of that in my community and it`s going to help our community, because we have a lot to offer our kids.
I hope that I can give back to my community so that they may not go down the same path that I did.
How can I help my students?
If you have a student, I think you should visit their college or a community center.
If you are in the community, you can talk to your friends and relatives about the situation and ask them about resources and how you can get help from the community.
But also, go to the jail.
Go to the community center and tell your friends that you`re sorry.
You can ask them if they need anything.
And remember, you need to be willing to make an effort to help your community.
So what you need now is the leadership to help you.
And a lot will happen in your community, so you have to be prepared.
If I can help my student, then I`l be glad to do that.
And there`s nothing wrong with being kind and helping them out.
You`re helping them to find the right way to do things.
But don`s say anything to them that you don`re not going to do.
If anything, you`ll have to keep your mouth shut because you are hurting them.
That`s the way to treat people.
So if you can, get your community involved.
If they don`, they`ll probably not want to talk to you anymore.
