"People don't really have much hope here. Us as kids, luckily, I have somebody that's always on me and I try to do that at the local community center that I go to. I try to give kids some type of motivation. I try to be a motivational speaker to them and show them that we all come from the same place and you can still make it out your situation and be successful. We all have seen death and violence and people getting locked up. If you see me doing something positive, I want you to see it and be like, 'I can do it, too!'. You can make it out your situation. It may not be the NBA or NFL, but you can get a college degree and make something of yourself. That's the motive.   Always keep your head on tight and don't let nobody influence you to do something that someone else is doing, if you don't feel comfortable with it. Some people see all that money and the material things but they don't see the things that come with getting that money, like jail. Do what's best for you. If you feel that your crowd is into that stuff that you don't want to be involved in, then don't be in it! You can find a group of people that's on the same mission as you." - Cam, Parkland
