Born into a poor family, Doc Warren followed the path of many poor children. Lack of resources and lack of hope lead to dropping out of school. After becoming a teen father at 15 (he maintained custody of his son), Doc went back to school and broke the cycle by being the first in his family to graduate high school and then enter college. He has dedicated himself to helping others achieve their goals and dreams through community activism.
