Ray had a rough childhood and upbringing. Throughout his life he was treated badly and lacked many life skills, which would often result in him ending up in difficult situations.
Ray has worked hard to educate himself to not be the victim and empower himself. He also helps empower other men in their transformation.
Ray tells Recreation Coordinator Nicole that you get what you choose. Although he has not come from the easiest of places, he has worked really hard on himself to get to where he is today. He is a very bright and positive person.
