My grandfather said to me, “… always make the best of your opportunities…”. Today I am going to try and do just that. My name is Marcus Jones. I am the host-producer of the talk show, EVERYONE HAS A STORY and am the self-published author of my autobiography, EVERYONE HAS A STORY…THIS IS MINE. I wrote my autobiography, EVERYONE HAS A STORY…THIS IS MINE, for several reasons. First, for my children. I wanted to let them know that no matter where you come from or whatever disability you have, you still can be successful in this world. Second, I want to share my experiences and knowledge with the youth, to aspire them to stay in school and to change the way they think about the street life so they can better themselves. Third, I want to accomplish something in my life. I have learned many things in my life before my injury but I have learned many more after my injury. I LOVE TELLING MY STORY!
