When you see a great story, you want to share it. After surfing through Raleigh’s News & Observer website yesterday, we came across a story we had to post here on the blog. The article, which was authored by Lana Douglas and can be viewed here, is about Ty Hobson-Powell, a 16 year old student who is currently attending North Carolina Central University School of Law. The story did catch our attention, but not for the reasons you would think. The obvious common thread here would be law, but the following quotes from Hobson-Powell are what reeled us in:
“In a non-cocky way, I want to make sure that there are more stories like mine, because there’s a lot of people like me and a lot of people with potential to be like me, but for whatever reason, be it lack of support at home or lack of drive from within, are not where I am currently”
He’s not resting on his laurels and he’s driving to improve not only himself, but those around him. Just a great all around story from Durham.
“Hopefully, I can instill values in youth and even adults to go out and strive to be as good as they can.”
