Adrian Reveles was born and raised in an abusive and neglectful household within a gang-riddled part of LA. He got recruited into street gangs, was in prison multiple times and got into the Sureño prison gang there. Amazingly, he turned his life around and graduated with honors from Cal State LA in the Social Work Program and now studies psychology at USC. He has a wonderful relationship with a woman who was his first girlfriend at age 12 and they have a newborn son. Adrian works with at-risk teens now to combat the attraction of gang life and helps guide parents whose children are in gangs. Listen to Adrien and Rachel talk about the powerful experiences he had when he was young that indoctrinated him into TRULY believing that this was going to be the only life for him.
Stay tuned, Before You Go: Rachel tells a story about a veteran who was a former member of Church of Christ.
