2 of 2

Recently, Johnson created the Quis 4 Kidz Foundation, which helps troubled children to acheive a better life. His mother remains very impressed with her son’s life decision stating,

"“I always tell him how proud I am of him of all his accomplishments and I always try to encourage him to keep praying and keep working hard and doing the things that he’s doing. That brings a light in my life, to be able to come and do things and see him play ball and talk to the community and the kids about what he went through and to be a motivation to them. That makes me proud and gives me honor to be his mom.”"
