"Was there anyone in particular who motivated you?"
"The person who had the biggest impact on me was me. It didn't take somebody from the outside to tell me what was right and wrong. I knew that myself, and I decided to make a change and live for the good, not the bad. There are gangs and violence everywhere, so I wouldn't say I had to get out of the environment to make a change. I just had to make my mind up. I had to decide whether to go to the left or the right. I've made a lot of changes in the last six years, and I'm on the straight road now. The future's looking bright."
