Like a lot of great minds who made smart choices and took life by the horns, Jeremy Newkirk invested in himself by 1st taking his education seriously. He called that Being Official. Mr. Newkirk grew up extremely poor. Twenty people in a 700 square foot shot gun house in rural Wallace, North Carolina. "I refused to be a victim to the streets and or terrorizing my community", said Jeremy. He was bullied and made bad choices that led him to bad places in life as a teenager that were not cool. After High School, Jeremy joined the US Navy to escape his negative situation. After the military he moved to the Washington DC metro area, where we hoped to pursue ways in which he would afford to take care of himself correctly. Jeremy was homeless for a while, sleeping on the Washington monument lawn some days. He walked to the library everyday for one year straight. He knew education was the one thing that was free. His mother consistently drove the idea the "being official" in life was getting a good, free education. So he taught himself entry-level electronics and how to write a resume from his military work experience. "I consistently walked to job interviews until I landed my 1st job", said Jeremy.
Jeremy now owns several businesses and a non-profit organization. Mr. Newkirk is also the Founder of BeOfficial MG and creator of GoVirtualGreen.com and GoVirtualGreen.org He proclaims that over the last 40 years he learned one thing, if nothing else, being hungry is one thing but starving with a little light of hope is a "Game Changer." A positive attitude, a supportive family, hard work, faith in God, and a great education, will drive you to achieve whatever you desire. These fundamental things will drive you to BeOfficial.
