From Hood2Hooded! The Dr. Shon Story

“Would you believe that my mom had me at the tender age of 14 and she became my guardian angel at the 8 years old?  Would you believe that my father was incarcerated the majority of my youth years and a struggling addict? Would believe that every one expected me to be a statistic? Would you believe that I once thought that I wasn’t good enough to be a doctor? I thought I was too dark, too poor, too stressed, too broken, too scared, too insecure, and too alone to thrive in a career limited to African Americans. But God… He makes all things possible. I’m living proof that you can break generational curses! Thank you Meharry School of Greatness for calling me on December 1st 2011 and saving my life. Out of all the things I’ve been through, all the struggles, good, bad, and ugly, God has never left my side. He makes Dreams Come True. Troops, we have 190 days left until graduation. Family and friends, thank you for your impeccable support. I love you all. P.S. I love you daddy, so happy God placed you back in my life.
