My name is Thax Turner, and long ago I made the conscious decision that my past would not determine my future, and that my potential was worth going to battle for.
See, I didn’t grow up with the privilege of wealth. But one day,as a boy, my grandmother, a very wise woman, gave me a bit of advice. And that advice helped to shape every decision I made from then on out.
