About This Book

An abused child. A tattooed gangster. A Boys' Town resident. A punk rock chef. A camp leader. A speaker and facilitator. A recipient of LKY Model Student Award. A tuition teacher. A trainee social worker. Gary is all of these. In this memoir, Gary recounts the events of his life with sincerity and in a straightforward way, from his childhood to present day. It details his transformation from an at-risk youth with criminal involvement into a promising young man seeking to build a career and pursue his dreams. In sharing his experiences, he also offers his thoughts about discrimination, empathy and its importance in relating to at-risk youths, as well as his experience of abuse and how it may be prevented. Can delinquents change and turn over a new leaf? Gary's story is an example of not only the possibility of transformation, but of drawing on past mistakes to fortify one's attitude and dreams of a better society.
