Born Frederick Walker, Jr in New Orleans, LA on May 4, 1986. Frederick was the younger of two children born to Lorraine and Frederick Walker, Sr.
As a toddler Frederick Walker experienced the stressors and dissatisfying challenge of the separation of his mother and father. He resided in the 9th ward in New Orleans until his mother moved to Mid City New Orleans where he graduated from Warren Easton High School in 2004. During high school Frederick played football, worked at local restaurants, mechanic shops, and other odd jobs to earn income. After graduating Frederick spent his young adulthood pursuing a music career and venturing the streets of New Orleans, LA before relocating to Atlanta, GA in 2007. In 2012, Frederick returned to New Orleans and re-enrolled in college receiving his Bachelors Degree in Psychology. He went on to obtain his Masters Degree in Social work in 2015. Frederick explains, “I have been through everything; hurricane Katrina, the streets of New Orleans, and mental instability. I must be highly favored. God has me here to do something much greater than I can even imagine. It’s my job to keep the faith and work hard everyday to meet his expectations until my time expires.”
Frederick, The Author
CHANGE FOR BETTER
My latest community based curriculum has a mixture of theory, cultural competence, and processes of change that is invaluable. Change for the Better has 12 specific skills needed for our youth to succeed. Topics covered include decision making, communication skills, toxic relationships and more. These skills are taught through lessons that examine each skill and offer thorough explanations of their importance. The lessons are followed by worksheets to encourage participation, enhance retention, and application of these essential skills.
Investing in our youth; is investing in our FUTURE
