I am De Angelo R. Moody “A problem solver and a transformer of people overcome by anger and despair”. I am currently preparing our first book series on equipping youth with the transferable disciplines of success and cognitive skills of life. The series encourages open forums and solution driven debate based on current events and the misadventures of real life individuals like the main little guy in our first book that learned as a child living in horrific circumstances how to make the impossible possible in , “Un-Broken, To Hell and Back”. Whether it’s the formal settings like universities or less formal settings like community learning centers, the needs are the same; improved fundamental and practical disciplines of understanding and implementation of knowledge.
We’re not reinventing the wheel here. We just want to do our part in making it roll smoother and faster.
Educators, curriculum designers, and organizations it is my hope that you will allow some time to share of your experiences, concerns, and solutions. You can either be quoted or anonymous.
“Children that are looking forward to the future aren’t looking forward to jail.”
When did you first start writing?
After a culmination of challenges and set backs in my life professionally and personally, I found my self near death, recovering from surgery, reflecting, depressed, and feeling that I hadn't lived my life yet. I had only managed to survive, maintain, and provide a very comfortable lifestyle for others. Outside of my children, very little to none of what I did to earn a living or who I cared and provided for gave any fulfillment. I didn't even live in the climate or geographical location of my preference. This is when a calling, a passion from deep within said, "MAKE A CHANGE, MAKE A DRASTIC CHANGE!". This was write around January of 2010.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I am done!! No, really I don't know what my greatest joy of writing would be at this point. However, I get tremendous joy from the profound affects my teachings and experiences are having on others and myself. Not only do I strive to practice what I teach, I also strive to remain a student of it all as well.
