I was on Facebook on a group for authors who are looking for media exposure when I discovered Randy Kearse. He was selling drugs as a teenager when he got caught and spent several years in prison.

He spent his time rehabilitating and writing a book about his journey. It has become a number one best seller and his focus has been in helping youth.

Of course we started talking about UBU and what I am trying to do. I told him all about the school and he offered to help in any way he could.

I told him about conducting a fundraiser in New York and he was more than excited about being a part of it.

We talked about several types of events and even a couple of event planners we could work with.

So we’ll be working together in the near future as soon as I have an event scheduled.

I can’t wait to interview him on my radio program too! It will be great to discover what path he took to become a best selling author!


About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
