I had a great time at Seward Park but it didn’t start out like that. I was part of the second floor, people would know what that means. I felt awkward until my second year. I started Boxing and fought in the New York City Golden Gloves. Made it to the semifinals twice in the Super Heavyweight Division. After graduating, was trying to find my place in life. I became a Correction Officer, worked in Rikers Island for five years then became a Police Officer in the NYPD. After my professional career started, I started my academic career. Twenty five years after graduating High School I received my undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from John Jay. Getting ready to retire and go on the the next chapter but all started in Seward Park.
