“From Juvenile Hall to City Hall: Your Resume Can Change” is the title of the autobiography & journey of Alive & Free alum & San Francisco’s District 10 Supervisor Shamann Walton.
“Because even in my life professionally having something to look forward to is always something that drives me and the fact that. When I came home, I knew I had an opportunity to go back to a historically Black college and university. It was right before my senior year. Now, I always gotten decent grades, even through incarceration, even through being expelled from school, even being a teen parent. All these things are talked about in the book because your circumstances really can change. But that trip changed my life forever and I truly believe without that experience, I would not be sitting here with you.”
