I, Milo Laurenz Jerome Alexander Dodson, am a Biracial (Black and White) man of unequaled resilience. I am the unexpected, yet successful and proud product of a K-12 public school system and a single parent household. I am the annihilator of any stereotype that is set upon me. I am the stone that was once rejected now serving as the cornerstone. I am the voice for every forgotten inner child. I am the mystery meat that is never understood but always enjoyed. I am tenacity, compassion, and humility incarnate. I am my only true obstacle. I am a walking contradiction of low self-esteem and grandiose dreams. I am the thirst that neither Gatorade nor Sprite can quench. I am the cool on the other side of the pillow. I am a raging bull with a china shop attached. I am everything naysayers wish I was not. I am what happens when you begin to believe and become who you are.
