"I like inspiring people to get up and try to do their dreams," said Tolson in a recent interview with WTOP-TV. "And it seems like not a lot of people are doing that. They have obstacles in their way, and they don't know how to get by it. But for me, I had obstacles as well, and I just thought really hard, and tried to be creative, and got around those obstacles or broke them down."
