Introducing Dr. J

Meet Dr. J, an embodiment of resilience and inspiration. Born into the vibrant community of Oklahoma City, his journey from uncertainty post-high school to embracing his potential is a testament to tenacity and self-discovery.

Though initially hesitant about college, Dr. J chose Langston University, a choice deeply rooted in family legacy and practical scholarship opportunities. Here, amidst personal trials and triumphs, he found not just an education but also his life partner.

Transitioning from Langston with a chemistry degree, Dr. J faced the profound loss of his father, a moment that profoundly shaped his future. It was during these formative college years and subsequent work at a summer camp that he discovered a passion for mentorship and community, laying the groundwork for what would become Don't Be Scared.

Pursuing further education at Louisiana State University, Dr. J navigated the rigors of graduate school, emerging with a PhD and a vision. Now an assistant professor and a father of two, his project Don't Be Scared has blossomed into a movement, empowering individuals to face their fears and embrace their journeys with courage.

Invite Dr. J to share his compelling narrative and the life-affirming principles of Don't Be Scared. His story isn't just one of academic achievement; it's about transforming adversity into advantage and fear into fortitude.
