What do you do and why do you do it?
I am the founder of Persistence is The Key! A Nonprofit Organization. As for my occupation, I am an attorney.
How does what you do benefit others?  
Well. Persistence is The Key is an education-focused nonprofit. Our goal is to assist the next generation in obtaining their educational goals. Recently we kicked off our laptop giveaway.
Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now.
Well. When I graduated high school I planned on becoming a medical doctor concentrating on sports medicine and my first semester in college after meeting with the pre-med advisor and reviewing the pre-med required courses I changed my mind I am not a math and science person. I originally expressed interest in law school during my second year in college after having a talk with my Dad. He thought it was great that I wanted to attend law school because of course my Dad is a lawyer too. After graduating college I spent a couple of years working in sports media and marketing. I have worked for ESPN, Fox Sports Net and CBS Radio to name a few of the media companies I worked at. It was fun and I enjoyed it but I wanted to do more and also I was not going to take the traditional route a lot of reporters take until they get that big break in journalism. Also, believe or not I actually had a time in my life that I wanted to become an actress.
What are your goals?
More speaking engagements, hopefully, more opportunities to work in tv as a legal correspondent or something else. I’m open to fresh ideas.
What are your inspirations?
My parents. I am able to pursue my education and everything else because of the investments they made in my life. I consider it a blessing to be their child. I truly hope they are proud of me and everything I have done thus far.
If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it?
Lol! The ability to read minds. That superpower would help me in business and other areas of my life.

Anthony Amos: Artist and Creator

"I fell in love with drawing at 4-years-old. My mom introduced me to drawing as a creative outlet. Around 10, my grandmother enrolled me in art classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. I got into customizing shoes at 13 because my family couldn't afford to buy fresh kicks but twice a year. It was embarrassing, I hated waiting to be fresh. On a random day, I painted a pair of all-white Air Forces and they were a hit the next day at school. Art kept money in my pockets as a teenager." What do you do and why? I’m a visual artist and sneaker customizer. I create because it's a passion. How does what you do benefit others? My work helps people to define and express themselves in color & style.
