A young man identified on Twitter as @Ty__glizzyy has sought to motivate people who are downtrodden by sharing his unpleasant life history and how he has managed to surmount all the odds.

According to him, during his teenage, he got “kicked out of school for a year, got locked up in Chesterfield County Jail.

As if those were not devastating enough for a boy of his age, when he eventually regained his freedom from prison, he had no place to go and resorted to sleeping in the streets.
