Today we’d like to introduce you to Cammeron J. Ficklin.
Hi Cammeron, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
It’s a bit of a cliche, but I started as just a young boy with dreams and visions bigger than the environment I was around.
I didn’t always fit in because of that, my interests and hobbies were not the typical things a young black boy was into. However, I had to stay true to who I was. I had to persevere because I wanted more for myself. I knew there was more for me than what I was experiencing at that time.
A word of advice my mentor Chris O’ conner gave me was, “never stop asking questions.” Successful individuals began entering my aura and because I am a curious person and I like to ask questions, I began taking those opportunities to do just that. I became hungry for knowledge and understanding.
I had a goal in mind and I used what I had to get what I wanted. I worked hard, sacrificed, put my team before myself, and continued to push forward from there.
