Riley Rossey was a brilliant young man who was socially behind his peers during pre-school, elementary, and middle school. It wasn’t until he got to high school and met his guardian angel that he learned, with the help of a special young lady, how to change his life.

Riley grew up as a poster child for a bullied student and learned that he must be the change agent in his life to become a successful adult. Although his grandfather and father were school principals, he had to learn for himself what road he must follow to be successful—and that how you choose friends can help change you.

Despite his progress, Riley’s biggest nemesis continued to try to bring him down, as Riley learned that bullies exist in adulthood as well as in school.

The ending of this story is magical. This fictional account brings to light just how we all can go through challenges before reaching our own “aha” moment in life.
