Leaving a Mark, Instead of Just Scars with Hassan Latif The Soul Stories Podcast

    • Society & Culture

Hassan Latif is the Founder and Executive Director of the Second Chance Center. The Second Chance Center is dedicated to helping the formerly incarcerated successfully transition into society with proper education, support and resources. Hassan actually spent 18 years in prison himself before becoming the role model he is now. In this episode he recounts his early days of choosing life on the streets in Brooklyn, New York, growing up in segregated America, and the incredible transformation he underwent to becoming the leader so many know and love. You are in for a treat. Hassan is an incredibly engaging storyteller and I'm excited for you to listen. Here's our conversation!
