Marcus Buggs, of Ann Arbor, MI was getting ready to blow out 18 birthday candles but in reality he's been a man since he was 9. He saw his dad shot & killed in front of him and his mom has been in & out of jail ever since. Never really having the "typical" teenage life, he had to help raise his siblings. Marcus is so determined to succeed, be a role model & not let the bad things define him. Check out the story & video in the Detroit Free Press by writer David Jesse & I. Marcus is someone you want to root for, he inspiring! http://tinyurl.com/GrowingUpQuick
