Adam Says…

“I want to use my life story to move the masses by helping others learn through my experiences growing up as a homeless kid; becoming a highly engaged but still disconnected youth, and; growing into my life’s work with intention and fortune. By doing this, I teach people⁠—young and older⁠—to learn through their own life stories, too!”
