We Beat the Street – by Sampson Description:

We Beat the Growing up on the rough streets of Newark New Jersey Rameck George and Sampson could easily have followed their childhood friends into drug dealing gangs and prison. But when a presentation at their school made the three boys aware of the opportunities available to them in the medical and dental professions they made a pact among themselves that they would be doctors. It took a lot of determination–and a lot of support from one another–but despite all the hardships along the way the three succeeded.
