Instilling Change: Rontosh Gibbs

Rontosh Gibbs walks into a room with a smile of confidence and appreciation for life. Born in Kingston North Carolina, Rontosh moved to Kansas City, Missouri at the age of 8. Along with his parents, Rontosh suffered from a life of poverty that steered him to the streets. Feeling a sense of regret about his circumstances, he tried to no avail to get away from the fast lifestyle that soon led him to his first arrest at the early age of 13. Before long, a life of criminal activity caught up with him, leading to incarceration.
