After 15 years of incarceration, Antoine is not ashamed of his background or incarceration, but views it more of an asset to bolster his desire and aspiration to succeed. A high school grad, captain of both high school football and wrestling teams, member of JROTC and on his way to the military, Antoine was no delinquent. However, an irresponsible 2 seconds changed his life. With much of his life spent behind bars, Antoine believes a job is the most important thing an ex-offender can receive upon release. Antoine believes ex-offenders are full of untapped potential and that employers must tap into those skills to find great treasures.
