JIP 041: Elmer Hickman

Elmer Hickman: from homelessness to school principal to personal trainer

Elmer is currently in his 40s, but it feels like he has already lived many lives.

Elmer grew up in Southern Illinois. He talks to us about his difficult childhood, being homeless, moving school many times, being an angry kid, fighting a lot, etc.

Years later, he decided to become a teacher then a principal to help children in difficult neighborhoods like himself so that children didn't have to experience what he went through. Eventually, after having health issues, he totally changed his career and became a personal trainer... which led him to move to Miami.

Elmer also shares with us some of his experiences about living as a tall & built black man in the US.
