My name is Armando Rosales Jr. I am the son of Armando and Sylvia Rosales. I am also a twin. My twin sister is named Sylvia Rosales. As I was growing up I was really into sports and was always most valuable player (MVP), my goal at the time was to play in the Major Leagues.

He put a gun to my head and I got so scared that I snapped out of it. I quit using all those drugs. The next few years were also difficult.
