His mother was murdered when Elvis De Leon was 16 years old. He could have turned to gang violence. Instead, he turned to design and became a successful graphic designer.
John X. Carey produced a short film, set in the gritty streets of Harlem, in which Elvis de Leon compares living purposefully to starting each day with $84,600 in your bank account. At the end of the day it is gone so spend it well. Make something positive with your life.
So, OK, the 84,600 is slight reversal of two digits (60 x 60 x 24 = 86,400), but the message is a good one. Make each day’s seconds count.
