Don't give up out there, kids.
I'm a high school drop out who's now a Manager at a top 10 consulting firm. For all of those out there who are asking 'do I have a chance if...', here's your answer: you f*cking bet you do. The only thing stopping you from getting that prime job is a little gumption, some solid dreaming, and that burning desire to go after it with everything you got, and a little more. If I can get to where I'm at today, you can, too.
Alright, here we go.
That wasn't a typo up there, nor was it the crappy airplane wine making stories. I dropped out of high school after my junior year of high school because, well, it sucked. I had my sights set on breaking into extreme sports like every self respecting teenage punk and, besides English and Photography classes, I couldn't stand another year of high school.
Yes, I was the product of a broken household in Baltimore City. (See: The Wire)
Yes, I was with that crowd who got into bad stuff. (See: Baltimore Drug Trade)
Yep, arrested when I was 17. (Nothing to see here)
You get the idea.
