He’s a Harris Fellows, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Delta Xi Sigma Chapter Secretary, and the Economics Student Association!!! He has worked at a bank since graduating, but now he is embarking on a new journey by following his passion to help youth live theirs. Taurus is now a Motivational Speaker, traveling the country to share his story. Go Taurus!!!
