Open Letter to Mr. Sean Combs aka Diddy:

I believe I am a worthy candidate for your phenomenal Dream Big Campaign. Here’s My Story:

My name is Quinten Barnard. My definition of dreaming big: Fitness, Fashion, Healthy living, and Giving Back!

I’m a Miami Native. Living amongst poverty stricken areas in Miami as a teenager I’ve observed that children are at risk of addictive dangerous and life changing behaviors. Inner city culture tends to drive high crime rates and poverty stricken communities into generational cycles. The buy-product being cases of alcoholism, drug abuse, physical and sexual abuse in addition to mental illness which have stirred our communicates into disastrous futures. This has motivated me to create the importance of mental success and self awareness with our bodies. Talented youngsters from any environment can grow to be not only successful but “confident, competent, and caring.” I am living proof.

I am inspired by Diddy’s Dream Big Campaign. The concept motivates me to improve myself socially, & emotionally, with awareness starting with my own work ethic.

I invest my time with non profit organizations and local community youth activities. I challenge myself daily to help our youth accomplish their full potential with personal growth.

Following the Sean John mission and objective of the Dream Big Movement, I’ve learned to always PROGRESS and PAY IT FORWARD. Through self awareness and work ethic I have become a man willing to evolve and contribute by investing my time into starting my own non-profit organization “All Kids Fit” and sharing time with local community youth activities.

As I begin to challenge myself daily, helping our youth learn how to accomplish their full potential with personal growth, the message behind this campaign has helped me organize a wellness brand inspiring and teaching the youth the importance of a healthy lifestyle. And my own life experiences have helped me broaden my horizons..experiences such as losing my mother to cancer when I was 24 years of age and stepping up as the responsible sibling she taught me to be. My mother was a police officer who taught the importance of being positive and giving back to my community.

Being a single mother and an officer, she made sure that her son wouldn’t become a “statistic” of the urban community. A destructive lifestyle where drugs and poor healthy choices could have easily been my reality before I had a chance to ever live.

To conclude I realize what made this campaign so relatable to me was knowing that in order for the next youth or generation to succeed one must not be selfish but selfless. I was that young kid once, who needed a mentor. As one of the faces of this campaign, I can help use my healthy lifestyle platform for the betterment of our youth.

If selected for the Dream Big campaign, I aim to create a wellness program that teaches inner-city youth the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Sean Combs thank you for inspiring me to dream big and overcome adversity. With my willingness to mentor and lead through your campaign and my non profit All Kids Fit, I believe we can inspire youth to rise above unhealthy lifestyles, drugs and crime that may make up their environment and Dream Big!
