Kent is a sincere individual who has the passion, purpose, and determination to achieve his goals. He consistently demonstrates a willingness to share his life skills with others, encourage them, and learn from new experiences. When Kent makes a statement of intent, I have learned to ask not “if it will be done,” but instead “how soon will it be done.”
