I was born and raised on the island of St. Croix in the United States Virgin Islands, America's Forgotten Paradise. I have resided there all my life except for the five years it took me to get my degree in Civil Engineering from Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. I love my hometown.

I graduated from high school before I was 16. Graduated from college before I turned 20. Was promoted into management at the Water and Power Authority before I turned 25. And hopefully will have my own real estate services business before I turn 30. Like Bob Marley's son, Junior Gong said about himself, "I am the youngest veteran."

I consider myself a social activist and despite my innate dislike for politics, I continue to be sucked into the leadership gap existing on the island of St. Croix. I am on the frontline of a revolution that most people don't even realize is being fought. My fellow soldiers were all drafted, none volunteered.

These are my chronicles. My chance to vent and get up on the soap box. My life and my views. This is the world according to Karl!
