    I can only try to imagine the suffering that he has witnessed, but some how he's taken that experience and used it to help him achieve his goals. I love to read stories like this about young people making their dreams happen. The fact that OSU has a small part in this makes me proud of our school for providing the right environment for personal growth.
    Well done Yves! Thanks for sharing Blackhawk!

    Back when white dudes ruled many African countries, DRC was known as Zaire. Kinshasa is where Ali and Foreman fought The Rumble in the Jungle.

    What a great story. His character seems of high caliber and he seems to be upbeat and positive in all situations. I enjoy following him on twitter. Class Act!
