I'm actually a peer speaker where I go all over Chicago speaking to kids about violence prevention. Tell them how, the program is about focusing consequences of gang and drug activity, and I just pretty much facilitate to them, tell them about the brain and the spine, and what happens to your body when you have a spinal cord injury and open the floor for any questions after that. And I also have another job where I'm a long-term mentor for people that just got injured. We usually match the injuries up so that person can know exactly what that person is going through, and just pass down information.
