Speaker Spotlight: Wallo267
While incarcerated, Wallace Peeples aka WALLO267 became an avid reader and learner and began to realize he was in prison for being someone he really wasn't.

As Wallo267 would say, “he wasn’t in jail, he was in Yale; he wasn’t in prison, he was in Princeton; he wasn’t in the State Penn, he was in Penn State.” As his sentence was coming to an end, he discovered a cell phone that helped him see that the world was bigger than the streets that once dictated his every move. Once Wallo realized the power of Social Media and the Internet at large, he started to put together a plan for his release to spread hope to the masses. After he was released after serving twenty years, he hit the ground running.
