"Albert was born in South Korea to an African-American soldier father and a Korean mother. The family moved to the suburbs of St. Louis, near Ferguson, when Albert was five. Because the public school system suffered from the legacy of segregation, his mother worked two jobs to put him and his sister through parochial schools. Her dedication to her work as a cook, both in a nursing home and at a fast-food restaurant, demonstrated to Albert the value of hard work; her commitment to providing a good education for her children gave him the momentum he needed to become a member of the middle class.
But the path forward for Albert’s family was not without struggles. While Albert was still a teenager, domestic violence left him, his mother, and his sister without a home and living in shelters. The family received help that allowed them to start over — help for which Albert remains grateful. It provided the necessary stability for him and his sister to graduate from high school. This experience is one of many that has inspired him to work toward creating opportunity for others who are battling adversity in their own lives."
