At first glance I thought it would be easy answering this question, but as I began to think about the answer it became more complex. Anytime someone hears the word “hood” they automatically think Helping Others Open Doors, that is what I want my legacy to be. My legacy is one that displays one person going the extra mile to prove a h.o.o.d. lifestyle can spread across the globe for the greater good of us all.

Creating H.O.O.D. alone is my legacy that will carry on for years to come. Helping Others Open Doors or H.O.O.D. is a marathon that will be run by others long after I’m gone to ensure that THE H.O.O.D. NEVER DIES. Read more>>
