Dellon Jones

I am a sophomore Corporate Communication major here at Lycoming College. Some of my interests and hobbies are collecting sneakers, playing video games, staying woke, making people laugh (and laughing myself), and watching/talking about sports. I’m a black man from the Tremont section of The Bronx and I went to KIPP Highschool in the Bronx. I hope my blog makes you think and I hope it makes you smarter. I’m open to all interactions whether it be positive, negative, or anything in between. I crave your support and also your reactions to what I post. Thanks for reading.

I shouldn’t even have to go into the atrocities he says now and promises to do if elected President but I’ll do so as I see fit.
