Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. -Barack Obama

May you leave inspired and know that you can choose your own path. Growing up in Baltimore and being a black man in general, it can be a cocktail mixed with distractions, and stunt your growth. But this is a stellar example of how you can do anything with ambition, dedication, passion, and determination. We control our own narratives. Titus leads by example, by all of the things he was able to accomplish, and proving that we cannot be contained by any limits.
