My name is Christopher A. Young. I’m from San Antonio Texas. I’ve been locked up for 10 years. I’ve been on death row for 8 ½.
I love to read, write, and play chess. Since I’ve been locked up, I’ve written 2 books that I’m in the process of getting published. One is a memoir and one is a novel.
What I want to do with them is use them to fund the youth mentor program that I founded called “Reaching Our Young: From the Inside Out”. The program is trying to reach the youth in the streets that face the same issues that I faced when I was free. My goal is to stop them from what I’m going through, cut off the current continuous cycle.
I’m looking for a mature individual that’s open minded and willing to help all of the endeavors that I’m working on. I’m very straightforward and honest - sometimes to a fault. I’m interested in numerous other things besides writing, reading, and playing chess. Those things are following politics, sports, and current events. I love a good conversation that’s healthy, constructive, and productive.
If you want to help do something in the world but need a bit of encouragement, then feel free to write me. I’m locked up 23 hours in my cell with nothing but time to think, work, and attempt to put some of my ideas into existence.
I hope you’ll be that person that writes me and contributes to the betterment of this world. I hope to hear from you soon.
