Steven – Faces of ACE

“My time with ACE was probably my best experience because it brought me back into reality. My worst time was probably around 5 years ago because that’s when all my legal situations started. It just went down hill. In my teenage years, I was hanging with the wrong crowd. I guess when you’re at that age, you want to be accepted; everybody’s doing the wrong thing and I went along with it and I’m paying for it now. Here’s my advice to new ACE participants: No matter how much you dislike the work, how much you dislike going to classes. Just remember it’s about becoming a member of society and gaining a work ethic. In a month from now, I’m going to getting an apartment with my fiancée in Brooklyn or Far Rockaway. I’m expecting my first child soon too, so it’s crunch time.”
