What career opportunities did you have on the day when you walked out of prison?
I had many, many career opportunities. While I was in prison I prepared myself well. Not only did I have academic credentials from great universities, I had skills. I was a published author. I wrote numerous books. Those publications exposed me to a wide support network. I had three employment opportunities waiting for me. Further, I had an extensive list of sponsors who pledged to assist me. Halfway house rules required that I remain inside for three days. But on the fourth day I was allowed to report to a job that was waiting for me. The job gave me liberty to work toward building a more meaningful career. I’ve been working seven days a week since.
