Hello, I'm Griffin. You might have seen me on Good Morning America in 2014 when I was coined the "Homeless Valedictorian." I am now a full-time civil engineer and the author of my first book Boundless: Choosing a Mindset for Lifelong Growth.
I wrote my first book to inspire a generation of students and I am using that platform to build a scholarship fund with a portion of the proceeds. If you are interested in supporting, please visit the Book or Donate tab. Thank you for visiting!
As featured on:
What does it take to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles? Find out in the forthcoming book by a remarkable author who defied the odds by transforming from homelessness to becoming a high-school valedictorian.
His story will leave you inspired, empowered, and ready to tackle anything. Order now and discover the power of resilience and determination.
