Bobby was raised by a single mother for much of his life. His mother battled addiction and died in her 40s of drug overdose. He was adopted by his grandmother and never knew his biological father. Bobby was the first in his family to graduate high school and college. He is a proud “food stamp and welfare kid” that found his way out of his tough circumstances through hard work and education. He believes every small positive decision leads to larger life altering ones.
