A native of East St Louis, Illinois and was raised in a life of poverty. Stepfather was a drug dealer and raised mostly in a single mother household, Washington entered the United States Navy days after the Twin Towers fell in September 2011. My career in the Navy spanned over 10 years. Many of those years were in support of the Global War on Terrorism.

As a retired professional mixed martial artist, Washington has overcome so many adversities and obstacles in life and in sports. He has experienced, first hand, life’s hard blows and how the true battle occurs in the mind. His willingness to fight and never give up on his hopes, dreams, and aspirations paid off in the end. Hence, his resolve to see others succeed irrespective of their challenges.
