Success takes small failures

A Legendary Reason
My name is Oluwaseun Adeyemi. My father is Nigerian and my mother is African American. I was born in Oakland, California but later moved to an affluential neighborhood in Green Valley (Fairfield), California. I have one brother and one sister. I also have a bonus sister who is my first cousin, my parents legally adopter her when I was 15 years old. I saw the legal system at a very early age. My brother suffered from mental illness and as a result, was arrested several times throughout my childhood. I recall visiting him in jails and mental health facilities for most of my life. Not one time did he ever have effective legal counsel. This was my first glimpse of how the law fails people. I never understood why mentally ill were incarcerated instead of hospitalized.
