We had the good fortune of connecting with Tekquan Alexander and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tekquan, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
The things I went through inspire me most. I don’t want anybody to go through what I did, so I vent and give myself freely to the next person to give impacting knowledge that’ll help them be better than what I did.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a soul speaker a vibe I let my feelings go into the mic that’s how I vent and learned to talk to people. What sets me apart is I’m not out here motivating violence I barely speak on it because it’ll help the next person do something they don’t even want to do. I speak on the effects of what happened after how it made me feel and how it helped me learn from the situation. I speak to empower to strengthen to love to be loved. Most proud and excited about making it because I have children and I have other people to impact and no one is willing to lead how I am. For the better. I made it here off of discipline. Everyday I said I didn’t feel like it discipline reminded me I had to or I’d keep complaining. Was it easy? No. I learned the biggest lesson which is love fixes everything that could be wrong. You just gotta want to fix it. It starts with you freedom of choice. I just want the world to know now, I’m coming, Be ready. We gone change for the better and impact the world in a different way. This time the hood win
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The beach, hiking areas , helicopter ride over the city. Maestros to end the night. Museums the studio with me and to be around good vibes and energy. The most exciting things to check out are the ones you aren’t comfortable with. They make you look from a different perspective. Help you grow
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shout out KT from my boys to men program, never went but him trying impacted me a lot. I want to shout out Troy bill of the Cleveland Browns, without him I would’ve never seen where I belonged to focus on what was better for me. Shout out to me for never giving up even though I wanted to everyday. Last but never least the most important shout out to God to Yahweh for choosing me every time, even when I didn’t choose myself
