JOURNEY MY
THE EARLY YEARS

There are few who would rather go down the road that have already been traveled by some, yet failed by many, and then

there are those who'd rather go down the road less chosen in order to set their own footprints in life. Born in Williamsburg projects, an area in Brooklyn New York, Jamael "Horse"

Lynch decided to create his own

footprints and go against all the odds. He chose not to become a product of his environment, going in opposition of the

stereotypical roles of becoming a drug dealer, gangster, and teenage father. The dream he established at the tender

age of five is what gives Jamael the strength and will power to change negative aspects in his life to positive ones.
