Demetrius Irick, author of I’m Finally a Man
(DeeJak’s Publishing Company)
Born in the small town of Orangeburg, SC, there was little for the youth to do and limited opportunity for growth. Demetrius turned to drugs, crime and alcoholism as a means for excitement. At the point of no return and the brink of insanity, incarceration became his wake up call. After serving four years in prison, Demetrius returned to society determined to live a positive and more productive life.
With a renewed spirit and a better outlook on life, Demetrius had a mission to jump starting his career. Through life lessons, Demetrius was able to rise above the stereotypes of recidivism statistics to be a successful leader and mentor to many whom he comes in contact. As he continues to coach and develop his staff, Demetrius has been blessed with the opportunity to further his career and personal development as well.
