It Starts With You. Kirk's Story: Becoming the Man I Am

A riveting journey embodying trials and triumphs is what drives Kirk’s story, with a somber yet soothing musical undertone. His humble, yet glaringly captivating childhood illustrates the challenges he’s had to endure and overcome being a young black male.

Transitioning into a new society as a teenager had its own struggles, but through perseverance, a firm encouraging and courageous family instilled within Kirk a desire to become an upstanding person against the ills inflected upon his being and women in our society.

As a youngster he learned the crucial and pivotal role females play in shaping our world, and how we must all work to eradicate the plague of violence aimed at dehumanizing their existence. Through his teaching and an engaged sense of citizenship, Kirk explores these issues within various public spaces, attempting to shift our societal gaze in a progressive direction.
