A group of young boys have triumphed over the fate that sought to put them down and made something great of themselves.
The Baltimore Sun reports that the teenage boys under the company name Korner Boyz Enterprises started out washing vehicles’ windshields.
They were always washing the windscreens of motorists who plied Mount Royal and North Avenues in Baltimore in exchange for few money. Proceeds from the business went into settling food and phone bills.
On a fortunate day for Taetae, Leroy, Khalil, Keyon and Deauntae, a good Samaritan, Crosby-Singleton stumbled on the boys as people were casting insults on them.
Crosby-Singleton then started to think of how he could help the teens make more money which was later followed with him inviting them for a full day brainstorming with other creative thinkers.
Sheri Parks, a culture critic, said that the loyalty between the boys is amazing as they spoke about empathy.
The boys have an amazing mantra which says “freedom to hustle”, even as some of the boys are thinking of ways to recycle the bottles they use for the bottled water.
“What we said was, ‘We respect your hustle, we just want to show you some other options, how you can make money more efficiently,’” Crosby said.
