2: All About Me
3: My name is Channing steward I am a senior at Legacy High School where I play varsity football. If I were to describe the reasons that make me who I am it would have to be my sense of humor and my sarcasm for starters then it would also have to be my my uncanny ability to prove people wrong then it would be my dreams of what I want to become it the not so distant future. Even though I would call myself a professional procrastinator when it comes it it comes down to it if I really want something there is nothing that will stop me from getting what I want so I guess you could say I am determined but if someone was truly determined they would not be lazy until it is almost to late . A man who dares to waste one hour of his life has not discovered the value of life. Charles Darwin | My name is Channing Steward I am a senior an Legacy High School. I play football. What makes me who I am is my sense of humor and sarcasm. I am a christian and I attend church at Bethlehem Baptist Church. What makes me who I am are my values the way my mother raised me. My mother Avery Steward raised me to believe that you should learn something about everything because the more you know the less the world can deny you when you get older
5: I am a Christian I attend Bethlehem Baptist Church. There may be many different religions in the world but Christianity is the religion for me because out of all the horrible things I have done in my seventeen years of living I like the idea of knowing that there is a God that will save me from myself and the world that I am not quite ready for. My God is like a friend that will always have your back no matter what you get yourself into or no matter how much you may scream at him or betray him someone who will always listen no matter how much you complain he will always remind you that you situation could always be worse or even a friend that will keep you in line when you get out of line I guess you could say my belief is very versatile to my needs thas why I believe what I believe.
6: My Life So Far
7: My life is great so far but i cant wait to see what it beholds for me because good or bad its better than being six feet under the ground with no legacy and no one who can remember the good things you did in life. Life is precious and its the only one you get so no matter how much complaining you do at the end of the day even if you can change you situation just remember that what you do today is gonna make you a better person for tomorrow. | Learn as if you were to live forever but live as if you were to die tomorrow. unknown
8: My Family | Why am I trying to give if no one is willing to give me a try 2pac and The Notorious B.I.G
9: My brother Carrington is a very important to me because he has helped me through a lot of things in my life that I struggled to make it through but he was there to lift me up and put me on his shoulders over all of the mess and crap so that I could become what I want to be in life.
10: My Aunt Jessica Steward she works at the front desk at Legacy High School and she someone I respect deeply for making it through all the crap that she has had to deal with in life and she helps me so much that I cant truly express in words how much I owe her
11: Joann Dawson my grandmother the one who gets everything I need to achieve in life my grandmother spoils me and I love her for that shes the one I talk to when I cant take it anymore and I just wanna give up and throw in the towel my grandmother is one of those people that no matter what you have done she will help you she gives so much and as for nothing in return because if she did she would be a billionaire right now blowing her nose on hundred dollar bills

16: This is my friend Tionna she is a bronco trainer we talk everyday since freshman year in Mrs. Williams class we became friends over the summer while we were practicing for our first season as high school football players the funny thing about Tionna is that she actually gets my since of humor and we tell each other everything and we are actually going to prom together
17: These are my friends ursel and Dacarlos as you can see that they are also on the football team we played football together since middle school Dc and me are like brothers its funny how we can tell what each other are thinking it kind of weird considering we would have never meet if it wasnt for worley football, ursel and I also became friends at worley while we played football back in the day I can say that now that we are seniors about to graduate in a few months
18: This is my friend pepper she is a bronco trainer she is not a senior but she is cool people even though she is small and still does have any size on her even in the four inch heels she is wearing in this photo from the football banquet this year

23: My interest include making t-shirts on my down time when i am board i eventually at some point in the year 2012 plan on making a small business and surprisingly it doesnt take much to start a business all I need is an ID or driver license and a $25 dollars and a pen to fill out my DBA form
24: The graphic you see above is eventually going to go on to a shirt at some point but it is for a rap group that some people I go to school with are involved with | How I got started making shirts is kinda funny because i was board one day and I needed something to do so I was thinking of easy ways to make money and so I searched easy home businesses to start and making shirts was one of the things that popped up so I did some research and eventually I became more and more interested and now here I am today on the brink of opening my own business
26: Now and 4ever | This is the group I make shirts for
27: This is my unofficial logo for my business so if i was to sum my interest up into a few sentences I would have to say im interested in fun ways of making money thats why in a few years you might want to look out because you might be seeing my name in stores all over the couuntry

When I was younger the said life was gonna knock me down but what they don't realize is i'm gonna fight back | You only get one life so stop complaining and make shit happen The Notorious B.I.G
31: Texas Southern University the place that is my new beginning in life as I begin my road to greatness .

Prom was fun to bad its all over now I gotta get ready for college and the rest of my life which basically began after that night | Every man dies. Not every man really lives William Wallace
34: My Future | You know, I wonder if they'll laugh when I am dead Why am I fighting to live, if I'm just living to fight Why am I trying to see, when there ain't nothing in sight Why am I dying to live, if I'm just living to die 2pac and The Notorious B.I.G
35: Most of my life I always dreamed owning something that would allow me to leave a impression on this world ,because when I'm gone I want to be remembered for changing the world in way that people would be proud to say they were proud to have know me because, at the end of the day all you truly have is your name and it is very easy to forget someone who didn't make an impact on your life. I am going to be somebody one way or another so look out in the next few years you'll be hearing about me

46: Epilogue | If I could live life over again I would change a lot of things but most of all I would have to change my freshman year and tried harder in all my classes instead of just blowing them off and not doing my homework. My freshman year is the point in my life I can truly say I screwed up I almost had to repeat my freshman year who knows where I would be in life if I had to repeat my freshman year but I guess you could say I am very lucky and made it past my freshman year and now I'm a senior but since I can't change the past I am glad my freshman year happened the way it did or it wouldn't have opened my eyes and I wouldn't be the person I am now
47: Letter Of Gratitude | Dear Mama, Thank you for all your help to get me to this point in my life where I'm leaving home and going off to college through all the ups and downs , all the arguments I can finally say you were right and now I'm applying everything you taught me in life to make something of myself all thanks to you. I know I didn't make life easy for you by doing all the stupid and idiotic things I did but now I can proudly say that you helped me become the person I am today and last of all I promise you I won't screw up my life because I am going to become the man you always wanted me to be because "I would rather die like a man than live like a coward" you made me who I am today and "A man who doesn't stand or live for anything is worthless.
