(ABC 6 News) -- A former drug dealer and convicted felon turned college professor gave a life lesson at UMR tonight.

Jason Sole grew up in Chicago and lead a life of crime after joining a gang at a young age. Despite the odds, Jason turned his life around. He's now a professor at Metropolitan State University in the Twin Cities.

Jason shares his story across the country to instill a sense of hope in those struggling with similar problems.

"Everybody is struggling with something, so it's just like I want to show that I understand that and I empathize with whatever the struggle may be and I just want to show that things can be better if you believe,” said Jason Sole.

Jason is just one speaker who's apart of UMR Connects month of law and order.
