"Challenge yourself to be who you know you are capable of being. Challenge yourself to follow through – to live what you preach, to walk your talk. Don't worry about how slowly you feel you’re heading towards your goals, or how many roadblocks you find, or how many detours you're forced to take. As long as you keep doing your thing, you're still cruising far ahead of everyone who’s too scared to even try." - Marc and Angel Hack Life

Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
A: I will share a piece of my story. We were two friends. We were living in the darkness of addiction and lost our way. Enough is enough. With Gods' love, I found the courage, determination, passion and love to fight against myself. I was able to get out of the darkness.
I present myself. Alexandre D Legere. French Acadian. Artist.
I was orphaned from a very tender age of 5 years old. I want to share my story because I won this struggle. With Gods' love, I found a family every where I go. The world is my family.
Recently, I was walking down an alley where my friend Robert used to live. Singing to him. Love. Truth. Courage. Faith to never give up. My Biggest wish is to see him happy and in peace. Eyoalha was doing her art at the end of the alley while I'm singing to my lost friend. With Gods' Love, she is now a friend. This is Gods' handiwork.
I want people to remember that the greatest artist is God. Now I take the time to see, feel, listen and smell his art. It's a benediction. That's the reason I jump. I jump for joy. I jump for peace. I jump without fear. I jump for love. Thank to all my friends who never give up and who believed in me. Special thank to my dear friend, Robert.
Photos of Alexandre were taken in Vancouver, BC Canada.
