Hello out there, I've never "blogged" before, so here I am. I hope you are well.
Here's 2 pics - so you can see who's the "blogger", & some info about where I graduated High School - is St. Mary's in Berkeley, California. If you're not familiar with with California, it's about 15-20 minutes from San Francisco.
I've also enclosed a couple articles about the circumstances of my incarceration - because whoever is reading this will want to know & I cna only say so much because I'm pending appeal.
Up until I was incarcerated, I was very active in community; youth events, positive activities and alternatives so young people won't get "caught-up."
If you're a young person reading these letters, I really encourage you to make positive things happen. It feels great to do good. You also meet very nice people & the more nice people you know, the better of a network you've created for yourself and future opportunities.
* If you have any questions; please give me a blog reply.
Culturally/Ethnically: My last name is Singh, I am Sikh; My mom's side of the family is Hindu. I love being part of both worlds, it's a blessing. I speak Hindi & can write it as well- although not as well as I'd like. My parents were born in the Fiji Islands; I was born in Berkeley, CA in 1975.
Despite the fast that I am incarcerated, I try to be involved in many positive activities. I will be writing about some of the various things I am involved in with my future posts.
While you wait for that (I hope) here's what 'prison food' menu looks like. I enclosed a 'Standardizes Inmate Menu' for you to see. On paper, it's great, but when you walk into the chow hall & receive your tray... I guess it's like watching a commercial for a Big Mac, then when you go and buy one- you say "where's the beef?" In here- when you receive the tray- it's like, "damn, where's the food?" After eating a dehydrated 'happy meal' 2 hours later you're hungry again, that's when you have some 'canteen'/commissary, if you're fortunate enough to either have, a prison job that 'pays' or family/loved ones who send money onto your prison account, so you can buy food, personal hygiene products (soap, deodorant, etc), or goodies like honey buns or candy- Snickers.
