The Cleavland native, clarifies the youthful notion of,’ being behind bars is cool’ narrating her own experience saying,’Most of us don’t have it like Martha Stewart or Wesley Snipes, so it’s not easy to get back on track once you have a criminal record. It’s important to think before you act and not make hasty decisions that can change your life forever and possibly create a vicious cycle for your children’
The Visuals, was released via the social media in a viral campaign to promote positive choices showing a real jail which helps to dispel the absurd idea seen in movies that, prison is glamorous.
