I Got Your Back

“I want to help my own people because I’m noticing there’s two systems at play in America, where I’m from. It’s set up to reward those who have connections. It’s not what you know, but who you know. So, you can be the best of whatever field but they’re always going to go with someone familiar. How can I change this? Right now, I’m working for a game company in Japan. My goal is to get into a high enough position so that I can help people. If they need a position or a recommendation, I can vouch for them. That’s what the black community’s lacking right now. We need to get into places in order to help one another. I want to help my brothers and sisters back home who probably would never, in their wildest dreams, believe it’s possible to get into the game industry in Japan, or get a job here and live a comfortable life. I just want a better life for everyone.”
