- Growing up in Mobile, AL, Ward knew when to separate himself from others in his neighborhood. Said Ward, “From where I come from, the neighborhood that I grew up in, a lot of people don’t make it out. There’s a lot of stuff. They either flunk out of school, end up having a child so they have to drop out of school and raise that child, or end up going to jail. It really just made me want to do something more than what my peers were doing.” Ward would later surround himself with positive influences.
