A former high school student, on her way to college in pursuit of THE AMERICAN DREAM. At 17 years old, she graduated with a 3.8 GPA and two basketball scholarships, quickly found herself on the wrong side of the law. A ten minute decision that severely affected her parents, younger brother and ultimately her promising future. Reaching an all-time low, Desiree Lee encountered another decision. To either throw in the towel or wipe the sweat off of her face. She chose to keep going and embraced her past mistakes, instead of continuing to walk the journey under a cloud of shame. Ms. Lee has worked tirelessly over several years and is thrilled to introduce Prison Prevention Initiative.
