Bobby Jones - My name is Bobby Lorenzo Jones. I am 23 years old. I have recently finished up my Bachelors degree in Political Science from Portland State University. I am a very passionate person. Some of my passions include: the better treatment of foster care children throughout this nation, the restructuring of the funding system that is used to fund the public schools in this country, and the injection of love into the undeserved communities of this great nation. I'm the type of guy who thinks that things can be improved if we just work to make them better.
