I have been in prison for 27 years. During this time, I never found an opportunity to do something I could be passionate about. I arrived to San Quentin State Prison on 2013. I had a few different prison jobs before I was invited to join the SQ News team as a layout designer and staff writer. At first, I struggled a bit, but the camaraderie of my co-workers supported me as I learned our SQ News objectives. I have worked to support rehabilitative efforts to increase public safety and achieve social justice and to be the voice of those who don’t have the opportunity to shout out their needs to be heard. This also helped me understand that I have the obligation, as a member of society, to be part of this movement. Now, being part of the SQ News gives me the opportunity to do just that – support the voice of those who want to be heard. I am grateful and a proud member of the SQ News family.
