Throwback picture of myself and my first mentor. I grew up in a not so good environment in the east side of Bakersfield, Ca. But, it was few individuals like Andrew "Dance Fever" Jones that kept me off the streets by allowing me to be part of his dance crew. I could have easily chosen to do bad in school and fall into peer pressure of drugs, alcohol, and gangs, but people like him gave me a sense of purpose to go beyond those negative factors. I still remember when our report cards would come in from school , he would ask us "how's your grades" if we had "D's" & "F's", we would be in big trouble ha and not be invited to dance competitions out of town. High school was hard at times trying to fit in with the rest of the crowd and follow what others were doing. But, you have to be willing to say "NO" and go Against All Odds. So, thanks to Dance Fever and a few others I did not become another STATISTIC. #mentor#impact#unite#impower#motivate#bakersfield#hood#againstallodds#respect#realrecognizereal#thewildcard#thankful
