OUR FEARLESS LEADER, CARLOS JOHNSON
Brought up in group homes and foster care from the age of 8-12, Johnson soon found himself homeless. At the age of 15, he landed in the Department of Juvenile Justice. With no one to turn to, Johnson turned to poetry and boxing. He obtained his GED by the age of 16 and continued on to Benedict College following. Using poetry and boxing as an outlet throughout his growing up, Johnson had a burning desire to support the next generation. Johnson is a certified USA Boxing coach: 13 year old Silver glove Champion and 15 year old Golden Glove Champion. Speak Freely was a way Johnson could reach the kids who were destined to follow in his footsteps if not intercepted. Johnson works with kids to help work through their issues by incorporating poetry and boxing into their everyday routines.
