Roy Branklin, Jr
A Few Words from Juanita Shanks
"I had the great honor of interviewing Roy Branklin, our first year scholarship recipient. After being released from prison Roy embarked on a journey that would forever change his life and give purpose to his past. He completed his Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2015; he currently operates a High Profile Security Service in the Washington DC area; he's employed as a Clinician where he utilizes the therapeutic model and approach of Functional Family Therapy, while also currently in his residency to be Licensed as a Therapist; and finally, Roy also started his own income tax service in 2009. Roy’s goal is to serve God in a mighty way and he credits God for his successes. He aims to help returning citizens change their lives by changing their negative beliefs, by helping them realize that they are significantly valuable and that it is never too late in life to become what they could have became if they were willing to work for it. I hope you like our interview in four parts below." Juanita Shanks
