G STREET LION  |  Stalking a Dream

In my memoir, I share how I came from very humble beginnings, gained admission into the nation's top-ranked public university, almost by chance, and nearly flunked out! Until ... I realized that everything I needed to survive I learned growing up on G Street.

G Street Lion is a moving  celebration of self-discovery and struggle.  Its primary message is hugely timely: we can, indeed, become the best that our dreams promise.

G Street Lion is a tour de force -- a story of triumph over seemingly insurmountable adversity. He reminds us of what is possible if we dream big and believe in ourselves.

It is my great hope that the potential for leadership that lies undiscovered ... in so many of our children will ... be unlocked by exposure to LaMar's story.

This book is a wonderful story of perseverance, believing in oneself, and drive and determination. And sheer guts. Dr. Hasbrouck shares his backstory--I enjoyed reading every minute of it.

Since 1943, the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA has served kids in San Diego County's most critical community. G Street Lion tells the story of how one of those kids has made an impact near and far because so many did the same throughout his life.
