    About Alan Lazaros: 
    Born into a family that knew both prosperity and hardship, Alan Lazaros experienced life's unpredictable swings from an early age. Raised in the Massachusetts area, he enjoyed an upper-middle-class life until the age of 14, when his stepfather, who had been a consistent figure since Alan was 3, departed from the family. This sudden exit marked a drastic shift in the family's financial situation—his stepfather had thrived financially in the 90s and early 2000s, but upon leaving, he took with him the comfort and security of a steady income.
    With his sister moving out around the same time, Alan found himself in a stripped-down family unit, consisting of just his mother and himself. The shift was stark: he went from a life of relative comfort to one where qualifying for free lunch at school became a testament to their diminished resources. Those formative years of struggle and resilience would later sculpt Alan into a person with a deep understanding of life's volatility and the value of perseverance.
