Kevon Lee has lived a life that many could never comprehend. At the tender age of 5, he was placed in the foster care system due to being shot during a drug-related incident involving his parents.
The trauma suffered from the incident and separation from his family led Kevon down a path of depression. He turned to food to overcome the emptiness he was feeling. Kevon developed an eating disorder and became extremely obese.
As a teenager, Kevon's weight became to butt of his peer's jokes. While he was able to laugh it off externally, internally, it added to his depression.
Kevon was able to find hope in mentors, faith, and his grandmother, who he feels is his angel on earth. Through hard work and perseverance, he was able to turn everything around. He made his struggles his mission.
