Dmts: From Poverty to Prodigy - A Story of Resilience and Empowerment
Dmts, hailing from New Britain CT, has faced poverty, violence, and other daily struggles that many people encounter today. He has firsthand experience with the challenges that young black individuals from low-income backgrounds often face. Despite being in and out of jail from the age of 11, Dmts was able to break the cycle and make positive changes in his life. He decided to give back to his community by starting a basketball mentoring program called New Britain Legacies, which has expanded to youth jails across the state.
In addition to his mentoring program, Dmts is also an entrepreneur who founded the Dmts Network, an entertainment platform for artists and creators, as well as the owner of "My Wife Didn't Cook" restaurant. He even ran for Mayor in 2019 with the aim of bringing about positive change to his community. Despite not having graduated high school, Dmts obtained an electrical diploma from Lincoln Tech. He is a devoted husband and father of six, and has authored two books - "A Mother's Pain" and "Pain, Guilt & Success". Dmts has been recognized as one of the most influential black men in CT and received the "Youth Tomorrows" award from the NAACP in 2019.
Dmts has also established a positive relationship with the Warden and Deputy Warden of MYI, a youth detention center. He is a talented music artist who uses his creative skills to raise awareness and inspire others. His new EP, "From Poverty 2 Prodigy," is now available to the public.
