I'm so proud to be his friend.....
Have you ever met someone so amazingly special that you said to yourself, "They still make your kind?" Well, in my life, that's my friend Andre. Ya see, when I got off work this afternoon, I received a text message from a friend stating: "Andre's in the paper for his volunteer efforts in New Orleans!"
Funny, I've talked to Andre almost every single day and he hasn't mentioned a word about it....typical humble Andre!
Well, thank God for online newspapers, because here's his story:
Let me tell you a little about Andre. When you hear that Black men today "ain't about nothin," Andre's the poster man for hope. He has two degrees, one in MATH (Who, other than my sister, Tiffany, gets a degree in MATH!) and one in accounting, and he's currently working on his MBA. He currently works for University of Michigan-Flint as a Project Manager for the Office of Research. Andre's there when you need him and is always a shoulder to cry on. Andre is probably one of the smartest people I know, yet he doesn't like to talk about his accomplishments....matter of fact, you may have to pry it out of him.
Most importantly: he's incredibly humble. Last year during his spring break, Andre visited New Orleans to help in the rebuilding of houses.
Andre, whether you choose to know it or not, you're TRULY one of the best around.
Now, don't make some cheesy comment, Andre (I.E. "I paid Joslyn to write this") just take the compliments!
