Dorsey "Dee" Howard, Jr. was born in Chicago, Illinois. As a youngster, Dee started out as a straight "A" student. That changed very quickly when his parents separated and he found himself living in the Robert Taylor Homes, a Chicago housing project that was notorious for gangs, drugs, and violence. Dee quickly found himself adapting to his environment and by the age of eleven had become affiliated with a gang. Dee's teenage and young adult years were filled with drugs, violence, and prison. Dee attended the funerals of many childhood friends and was almost beaten to death on at least 3 occasions. Dee's life now is a story of redemption. While Dee was incarcerated in prison, he made a decision to stop making "left turns." He earned his GED and attended college. Dee's passion is to share his knowledge with people, young and old, and to help them realize that it is never too late to make "right turns" in their lives. Dee currently resides in Minnesota.
