My name is Derwin Wallace and I am the manager of NisonCo’s Investor Relations team. Here is my story of entering the cannabis, hemp and CBD sectors.
I was born in one of the most notorious ghettos in Chicago – Maplewood Courts / Rockwell Gardens. My father worked at the railroad and had a side business fixing people’s homes. After six years of living in the ghetto, my father finally saved enough money to move our family to the west suburbs of Chicago. My father was extremely strict and demanded I work to help pay bills when I was only in the sixth grade, so I got a job at a local dry cleaner cleaning clothes, sweeping, and mopping. My father required I donate half of my pay to the family bill fund, so I did. The balance of my pay was used for school fees, books, supplies, clothes, and lunch.
