Avoids Prison to Become Ph.D: Dropouts and Doctors
Isaac Torres started off on the wrong track. He described himself as hanging out with bullies as a child. By the time he was 17, he dropped out of school and faced his first felony. He didn’t learn his lesson. A few years later his activities resulted in his being charged with another felony. Then he met a young woman who mentored him, convincing Isaac to pursue an education. After attending community college to earn his GED, Isaac advanced to earn an undergraduate degree and then a master’s degree. Now he is enrolled in a program that will lead to his earning a Ph.D.
Isaac created a program to reverse the trends of poor people. Through his group known as TheSeedsProgram.org, Isaac mentors young people who were in trouble with the law. He helps those people grasp the power of language. Those who’d like to learn more should visit Theseedsprogram.org. Or they can watch on YouTube by searching for Isaac Torres Poet.
