W a l t e r J o h n s o n came into the world moving at an accellerated pace. Born into a family infused with dysfunction, the streets of New Orleans,
Louisiana became his home. As his mother battled drug addiction, Walter battled New Orleans crime infested
streets maintaining a Social Darwinism, “Survival of the fittest” stance. Instead of spending his days in the classroom, Walter’s
early ‘educational’ lessons were taught by the school of the hard knocks. While his world saw no peace, he learned how to make money quick. Walter’s life
changed at age 17. His criminal lifestyle came to a halt when he obtained a 10 prison sentence. The streets imbedded captivation began to die in Walter.

He reemerged as T r i f e l o n . Trifelon began
his sentence with keen rebellion of the prison system. It took six years and three prison transfers for the self depersonalization
to cease. He shifted his focus from the dysfunction of
prison & the weak injustice that overshadowed his existence. Giving praise & respect to God’s transition, Trifelon used the last 4 years of his prison term as a period of total restructuring
of his mind, ambition, and goals. Trifelon became a loverof economics, domestic trade, body and fender, barbering, science, math, history, and the world’s mythology. He’s read over
1000 novels. His under standing of achieving a fulfilling life came when the revelation of education’s power became his greatest weapon. School became a necessity.
