Mr. McMiller realized that you don’t choose your place of origin, but you can determine what you become in life. Being raised on the south side of Chicago Ron decided to make a change in the world, irrespective of where he has come from. He admits that he did not achieve much, but is proud of the fact that coming from the Southside of Chicago has not stopped him from fulfilling his dream, in fact, CHICAGO DEVELOPED HIM. Ron had a childhood dream of defending his country and becoming a Naval Officer. That choice has had its share of life’s vicissitudes, but amidst his mixed feelings that pervaded a humble beginning, he was afforded the chance.
