CruzPreston-2I was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the states at 4 years of age. I was raised in Washington Heights in New York City, then moved to Yonkers. I had a son at fourteen years of age, who’s about to turn twenty. Coming into the streets of Yonkers I got caught up in some beef with another crew. I tried to avoid confrontations with them but ultimately was forced to defend myself. In the 90′s the streets of Yonkers were very tough, filled with the crack trade and the hustlers who dealt in it. Being I was young I acted on impulse and got stuck in serious crime. I’ve been in jail now for fifteen years, with one year to go. While in jail I learned to speak English, how to control my anger, how to cook, and a license in the building maintenance trade.

I dodged a lot of bullets being in the max prisons at a young age, and finally learned to put the knives and guns down. My remaining time is in this low security facility, and I’m counseling others to help them stay out of trouble and so I can be more productive in society. My sign is Scorpio.
