#JohnnyPerez used to speak to himself in #solitaryconfinement, just to hear a human voice. The isolation inside #RikersIsland #prison walls could drive anyone crazy.  But for Perez, then a 21-year-old young man facing 15 years for robbery (stemming from stealing food from a convenience store) he had to do whatever it took to find the will to live. This week, Perez, 39, graduated with the title of “#BrooklynsBest” from #StFrancisCollege, with a #bachelors of science degree in #criminaljustice. It’s an accomplishment he could only dream of back when #prisonguards would #laugh at him as they watched him study. “You’re never going to be anyone… Why you keep trying to #learn something… You’re still going to have a criminal record,” Perez remembers his tormenters saying. “It’s very #discouraging to have to hear that constantly over and over again.” #foodforthought #rbg #problack #panafrican #blackexcellence #blackisbeautiful #blackmenrock #blackwomanrock #blackboyjoy #blackgirlrock

Facts paint a fuller picture, present to us a reality from which we can be confident in, understand and make decisions based off of those experiences and challenges. Without facts (and their subsequent fact checking) we’d move forward on the basis of misinformation, and our decisions may be influenced one way or another due to incorrect assumptions. ------ #lawyer #lawschool #attorney #lawyerlife #lawfirm #criminaljustice #attorneys #lawyered #lawlife #lawstudents #lawyering #familylaw #lawyerslife #lawyerstyle #attorneyatlaw #lawyerup #attorneylife #litigation #solicitor #criminaldefense #lawyerfashion #lawyerproblems #lawyerlifestyle #legaladvice #lawyersofinstagram #lawyergirl #lawyersfashion #lawyersday #lawyerstatus #lawyeredup
