the leader of the Screw the System movement.
Behind every person who dreams of making a difference or
challenging the status quo there lies a story that explains how
they got to where they are. Joe is no exception and his tale starts
as a directionless undergraduate in the year 2000.
University is often described as the best years of your life but
