Darris Drake, Jr.

At age 24, Darris was facing a 20 year sentence while recuperating from gunshot wounds that had him knocking on Death’s door. After 16 months of determination, he beat all odds and regained use of his legs.

Eight years into his incarceration, he regained his will to better himself. Thus, began his educational and spiritual awakening.

The first class he took was on the subject of “Chemical Dependency.”

The instructor encouraged him to keep a daily journal and to share his writings with others in the group. Before long, they began to open each group session with one of his thought-provoking journal entries.

Darris has found his purpose in life through expressing himself through his writings and helping others.
