Hi, my name is AJ. I am 30 years old. I have a big heart. Although I get looked at with judgement; I get treated differently because of my tattoos;the way I walk ;the way I talk. At age 14, i got caught shop lifting: petty theft. I was put on probation and locked up for 6 months. For petty theft. That was the start of the rest of my life. I went on to do 2.5 years before I turned 18, no violent charges, and now at age 30, i have spent 1 out of every 3 days incarcerated since age 14. I am not a bad guy, I do have problems with addiction, but I have never harmed anyone. Both my mother and father were addicts who spent my childhood less involved with raising me and more involved in getting drunk and high and not hiding this from their child. I just wish I could’ve Been given a fair chance. I am highly intelligent and have a strong entrepreneurial mindset. I have many different business plans that i wish to set into motion, with my biggest love at the top of the list: real estate. I want to begin a career in flipping houses only to build capital to buy houses with the intent of renting them out. I ultimately want to own a wide assortment of rental properties. That is my end game. That is how i wish to build my wealth. Not too many people in my shoes can tell you the meaning of the word wealth, let alone believe it to be possible to acquire for someone in my shoes. I know that anything is possible. I have applied myself to learn everything i can about what interests me and i won’t stop until i achieve it! I have been offset though, i have lost 7.5 years of my life, this last bid ending Jan 9th of this year. I am not looking for a handout, i have had my life ripped from me, i have not been perfect but i have not done anything to lose my life, we have a messed up judicial system and there are good people all over suffering because of it. Kids, losing years of their life that they will never get back. I missed out on high school. All the time people in my hometown ask me do i know him, or her, or them? And I’m always saying ‘no, I missed out on high school so I didn’t get to meet all those starter friends, the foundation of adult life, and all the experiences that help build a healthy social life. I have extreme social anxiety. I doubt i will ever be normal to most peoples standards. But, I am normal to my standards. I make AJ happy. And that’s all i can shoot for. I can’t live my life to make other people happy. Although i would love to have the chance to help out juveniles in trouble like i was. I would like to ask for help building some capital to invest into the real estate market so that eventually once enough income is generated i can go out and start helping our kids. Reach out to them so that they don’t have to lose their life like i did. Thank you.
