"My family has always supported my dreams. They instilled in me the belief I could do whatever I set my mind to, and taught me that hard work gives you the power to make your dreams come true," Marcus tells TWIST exclusively. "They have taught me kindness, gratitude, and to treat others with respect."
That's so empowering!
"My family has [instilled pride in me] by telling [me] of my incredible heritage and to be proud of who am," he adds. "They always say that no one else in the world can be you but you. This has always encouraged me to keep my head up high."
