Khalil Cumberbatch is the Manager of Trainings at JustLeadership USA, Columbia University Lecturer, husband and father to two young daughters. Khalil was sentenced to 11 years in New York State for a robbery in his early 20's. In this episode Khalil goes from telling us about his journey from Guyana as a child, to growing up in Southside, Jamaica, Queens,  to his hostility with his father, to his love for his daughters. Khalil exhibits tremendous insight into his experiences.  
 
After his incarceration, Khalil was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and faced deportation back to Guyana one week before he was to graduate from a Master Degree in Social Work. Thankfully, he was one of two recipients of an Executive Pardon from NYS Governor Cuomo to prevent his deportation.
