I have been incarcerated two times in the prison-industrial-complex. The first time I was 18 and I spent 41 months in prison. The second time, I was 23 and I did 31 months. Altogether I have done about 6 years in the penitentiary. While I was incarcerated the second time, I was able to earn my A.A. degree through a college program they had at the Washington State Penitentiary. Graduating with a 4.0, I was accepted into the University of Washington to complete my Bachelors Degree. I have been out for about 18 months now, and I am on the verge of graduating from the U.W. with a degree in Political Science. I am on the road to becoming a professor in the university, which is my ultimate goal. I taught a class at the U.W. last quarter about the History of White Supremacy in Amerika, and a few of my academic essay have been published by different publishers. One of my overriding goals is to challenge mass incarceration in the U.S. through my academic work.
