Originally from the Caribbean, I was born into a Celtic/Mayan family that emphasized education as the path to success . At 14 years old I started my experience with alcohol and drugs and it was all downhill from there. Eventually, in 1976 I migrated to the U.S., but continued to have lots of life failures because of my alcohol and drug use. After many years of homelessness and institutional commitments, I reached for help from the 12 steps community and my life took a turn for the better. Sober since 1989, I entered Los Angeles City College and earned a Certificate as a Substance Abuse Counselor and an AA in Human services in 1995.More
