Learning equals possibilities
"Being incarcerated since I was young, I have had my share of trials and struggles. But knowing every morning that I may learn something productive helps exceed all negative thinking. I can honestly say that today I'm proud of myself for the knowledge I've gained while being incarcerated. Learning equals possibilities and that's something I'm striving for beyond these gates!"
