REHAN STATON: The Pain-2-Power Person of the Week

Rehan Staton hasn’t had an easy life.  He grew up in a single parent household—with his dad—after his mother left the family and left the country when Rehan was 8-years-old.  His father worked very hard to provide for his children, but there were still financial struggles—real struggles, like missed meals and no electricity.
