"The Pinball Clemons Foundations has opened me up to a world that I never knew existed. A world filled with opportunities, positivity and determination - not just wishful thinking. I grew up around a community that often did not get to see the light at the end of the tunnel, so did not have all the right advice on how I could find it myself. We knew the light was there, but it more so existed in our dreams than our reality (wishful thinking). Now the light is very near and clear. The light is the mentors and peers who refuse to see you give up on yourself."
