“People always ask me: how did I get the name Struggle? The name was given to me by my older brother. He said I was always an underdog and fought my way through any kind of struggle. I was born a breech birth, I was born underweight, , I had a stuttering challenge, I had a difficult time learning and was told I should be placed in special education classes. Even as a child, I would look at everything as a challenge. Within a month of teachers saying I should be in special education, I went from the bottom of the reading level to the top of the gifted and talented class.
It took a unique teaching method by a dedicated teacher to help me succeed. I overcame stuttering and went on to be a public speaker, and poet who spread my poetry all over the world. I became the fastest sprinter of the varsity track team my sophomore year in high school.
I would take challenges, break them apart, and then come up with different approaches to conquer them. Hence the name Struggle (to push back) E (eclectic, selecting best from various ideas) Stylez (various approaches).”
