Following high school graduation, Tennessee State University accepted him but didn’t have enough money to keep up with the fees and other expenses. As a result, he started working as a car salesman in Arizona.
While working there, Chris saved a little sum of money which he used all up to join the Automotive Dealership Institute. By February 2018, he completed the program and he moved to Miami after that.
Though he expected to get a job pretty soon that didn’t go as planned. With a choice to either rent a room or rent a car, Chris felt the second choice more suitable as he needed a ride to go to job interviews.
With no money in his pockets or savings, he lived as a homeless guy sleeping in his car and showering at the gym. When Chris fell short on the rental payment of the car, the car dealership threatened to report the car stolen.
