I am a native Chicagoan. I was born and raised on the South side of Chicago in what was then called the ten-trey, and now known to be Chi-raq, because of the amount of killings that then and are now taking place on such an alarming level it has gotten the attention of congress and politicians. I grew up in a very strange environment, because the area was nice, but also deadly due to being riddled with gangs and drug dealers who would kill at the drop of a dime. It is because of this that I had to escape death many times. My siblings and I were raised by my mother Vicki V. Prince who raised us to be God fearing, and respectful of all others. This was not contingent upon what race, ethnicity or background they came from; or what physical challenges a person may have had. I was brought up with a code. This code was to love mankind, and treat others as I wanted to be treated.
I along with my brothers and sister were able to overcome adversity through prayer and hard work and make it out, now we can go back into the community and help others the way others helped us. I've done this to some degree by speaking to various schools in Chicago, by myself, and with the great motivational speaker Les Brown; who since I was a teenager, and after hearing him speak on the radio became a mentor from afar as it pertained to motivational speaking. My dream came true and I was able to speak alongside Les Brown. We utilized motivational speaking in the impoverished and deadly gang infested Inglewood community on the South Side of Chicago to inspire the uninspired!
My now spiritual father, friend, mentor and Pastor: Dr. Apostle Y. B. Amen has continued to encourage the congregation of Yisrael to go back to school to get various degrees to help others through the ministry, humanitarianism and in education; always preaching the importance of education. This is my mission to help others help themselves locally, domestically, and globally following in my pastor’s steps as we both follow Christ.
Golden Key Honour Society gave me something excellent to aspire to because of its tremendous domestic and global efforts around the world using various programs and platforms through education to help others. Golden Key Honour Society is affording me an even greater opportunity to make help others by giving me more resources to effect a very powerful, dynamic and positive change throughout the world by being part of such a prestigious and highly effective Honour Society. I am very thankful for this opportunity to be a part of Golden Key Honour Society as it is a great outlet, portal, tool, and vessel to help mankind on his/her journey to be the best they can be in life!
