Ean Polke spent 5 years in Prison, and after his release, took the bold step to develop himself. He enrolled for the Rutgers University Mountainview Program, and graduated this May.
Polke shared the photo above on his Instagram handle with the caption: “From the courtroom to the classroom..if I could do 5years behind bars I had to AT LEAST attempt to do 5 years behind some books.”
