Every day is a day I consider breathing a blessing; another opportunity to make it out of my situation.
Brandon Prince is an outstanding exemplar of resilience. His young life has been rife with grief and adversity including episodic and chronic homelessness and living out of shelters with his mother, the experience of overwhelming hopelessness as a teenager, being expelled from school struggling to adhere to attendance rules and growing up without a father only to reconcile shortly before his father’s death.
Despite these traumas, Brandon is quick to state that his “life has been a true reflection of God’s grace and mightiness” and that “every day is a day I consider breathing a blessing; another opportunity to make the most out of my situation.”
With this spirit Brandon has overcome each and every adversity, and with Step Onward’s assistance, graduated from college in Iowa where he played football and was a strong campus leader.
