Illinois Connection

I was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. Growing up in the inner city of Chicago has inspired me to reach as far as possible to obtain goals. I relocated to Homewood Illinois, where I attended Homewood-Flossmoor highschool. After highschool I attended Southern Illinois Univeristy in Carbondale Illinois. Although it was a brief stint, I still had the oppurtunity to major in film production, which I intend to put to use. I have currently written one book entitled ''Evidence'', which is an uplifting and inspring story about a rebelious teen, who is in search of finding himself, in a so-called perfect world. I currently reside in South Holland Illinois and I have dreams of obtaining a Nobel Peace Prize. Once my novel is able to generate success, I have intents to turn ''Evidence'' into a major film.
