Drug peddling, armed robbery and burglary were just some of the activities that were part of Marquese Steward’s life before the law caught up with him.
Steward spent his 21st birthday locked up and said he regrets being unable to celebrate this milestone with those around him. He said being locked up for a year gave him time to think about his actions.
Steward is currently enrolled at Ivy Tech and is pursuing a degree in business. He wants to move on, but there are difficulties that go along with being a former felon. Just trying to find an apartment has proved to be a challenge.
However, there is one place where Steward can find peace and an escape from the world, a place where he can move forward and chase his dream.
