|Not me, just a stock photo found online.|
I found myself unemployed and desperate for a job. My livelihood in
depended on a stable income. Two weeks later I received an offer for a small
mom and pop business which seemed pretty solid. They had even given me an
option of what department I would like to work in. It was incredible. I was no
longer a small fish in a big pond but finally regarded as someone important. I
held the key to my own destiny and I chose prison life.

What do I mean by prison life? I didn’t do anything illegal nor am I on death row but every day I deal with inmates on the federal level nationwide. I sell them clothing and footwear, not the orange jumpsuit kind, but athletic wear and Nikes. In a sense, I still work in fashion. My job is quite the conversation piece. Actually, that’s why I chose it; to be able to say I do something different and have stories to tell.
