"I joined the IYT program in April 2013. IYT essentially represented a gateway to a life of knowledge and wealth that my family had never experienced. I became the first in my family to go to a 4-year university. Because I come from a single parent family, live in an impoverished community and almost all the men in my family have an extreme criminal record, the odds were just stacked against me in a way that I felt like I could not overcome them; However, with the resources and guidance of IYT, I was able to bring out the potential out of a kid that didn't see a way out for himself or those around him.  I became the first in my family to attend a 4-year university and look forward to continue to mentor young men like myself along the way. Ultimately, IYT continues to give me the guidance I need to continue to become a better scholar and a better man."
