B.D. "StreetPriest" Alexander
B.D. Alexander is a street-smart entrepreneur from Cereal City, USA, who learned the hard knocks of the life early on. Forming his first company, at age 19, Byron had been Doing Business As, all along. In that nineteenth year of life, B.D. also learned techniques on how to successfully acquire real estate and acquired his first property with no money down. Pressured to keep up with his peers out hustling in the streets, B.D. made several crucial mistakes that would cost him greatly later in life. As an agent of change, B.D. “StreetPriest” uses his life experiences to add value to the lives of families who have been affected by death, devastation and mass incarceration. By delivering candid messages to young people through inner-city organizations and institutions, B.D. has positioned himself as an inspiration to the masses. From firsthand knowledge, B.D. works to evoke positive change in the lives of vulnerable youth, troubled young people and incarcerated adults. Through the use of positive and productive programs he has developed, B.D. prides himself on being a light in the world for people. The strategies and concepts B.D. has developed are both beneficial and essential and for all individuals reached. To do this, B.D. plans to sacrifice his day to day schedule equipping urban organizations through both the written and spoken word. His first and primary objective is to assist young men in recognizing who they are; by analyzing who they’ve become and inspiring them to strive in becoming who they were created to be. Through the formation of relationships, B.D. works to mold young men from destructive environments, into productive citizens with marketable skills. With his father being murdered before he turned 1 year old and his brother being sentenced to life without the possibility of parole before B.D. became a teen, he knows how easy it is to lose our lives. These incidents and many others in combination with his own failures are the driving forces behind all that he does to help young people realize their full potential. B.D. Alexander is the voice of the future generation who goes beyond the fruit, to study the roots. Through his work, B.D. helps young people see that their mindset determines their thoughts. To illuminate that their thoughts determine their actions and those actions dictate the future consequences. Let B.D. Alexander inspire a community near you!
