“Do it yourself.”


should i go

Throughout history in America, going to college after high school has been the choice for so many taking the path toward their career. And if you’re becoming a doctor or attorney, college is still the path to go. But what about other careers? Do you really need to attend college for four years to be an executive assistant? What about all those executive assistants in the past who performed their jobs well? They didn’t have half the education people do now, and performed their jobs better. So would we really send our children to college?

What would you really miss out on by not going to college? What, the parties; what the girls/boys? No, no, there other aspects of college that you miss and that is the connections to people who are on campus that you otherwise don’t meet not in school. Meaning, young people who join fraternities or sororities, they have connections all over he country. And people in their social group have always been known to lend a hand a aid in employment for their brothers and sisters. Now, the average person does not pledge, so what about them? Well, there are opportunities to get close to your professors who may aid in connecting with people they know in your career pursuits. But should all these connections cost you as much as they do?

too too much money

We say the connections you make in college. But let’s be honest, the majority of people, no matter how many connections are going to have this glorious life.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
