my name is Demetrius Jones. I'm self-employed in the industry of Finance. I've
relocated to Louisiana. I'm one who believes in the bottom line. The bottom line
for me is that what you achieve or fail to achieve in your lifetime is directly
related to what you do or fail to do. No one chooses his or her parents or childhood,
but you can choose your own direction. NOTHING IS CARVED IN STONE. You can change
anything in your life if you want to badly enough, as Keith Kennedy would say.
This is why I wanted to be a part of the One Hundred Men of Shreveport.
They've stepped up to the plate and have met a need that needed to be addressed:
THE YOUNG MEN in our communities. Here at the One Hundred Men of Shreveport, the
winners meet life's challenges head-on, knowing that there are no guarantees,
and give it all they've got. I wanted to be a part of a cause that was bigger
than I. To the YOUNG MEN who might read this I would say "Dare to Dream and
take risks." "If you are not going to work toward your goals and dreams,
don't expect others to."
