Ha’son’s Character

Ha’son’s plans for after prison:

“There is so much that I want to do and experience and there is so much that I want to be involved in. It connects to my poetry; there is a point where I write ‘out of my lifetime, how many years did I actually live?’ I always ask myself, how many years have I lived fully? Part of what I want to do when I get out is to just be able to live. For me, that means making change in people’s lives, making change in my life, and being optimistic in all settings. For example, I would love to do prison reform work and think about how to incorporate rehabilitation programs that actually work and make an identifiable difference in the lives of incarcerated people.”

“I want to make the most of my time, and the most of my life. I want to be active.”

Ha’son dreams of finding work that allows him to help returning citizens integrate back into society, creating stronger communities, and lowering recidivism rates as a result.
