Talented, articulate, realistic, intelligent, knowledgeable, either as a clever acronym or a description of Tarik W. Croft; there is no one way to describe who I am.
First and foremost I was born and bred in the county of Kings (Brooklyn to the unfamiliar). I am a proud HBCU graduate of Lincoln University in English Communications. Always thought I would be working on a news broadcast on your local cable television station but life didn’t set the path for me, so now I’m a compliance officer at a German bank. While it’s not the dream job, it pays bills and actually is kinda fun at the same time surprisingly. Do you all want to know my interests? No. Well I will tell you anyway. As the typical guy I like sports, of course, gambling and partying hard…lol. But there is a serious side to me. There is of course the undercover nerd who enjoys watching episodes of Jeopardy and doing crossword puzzles. One day I will conquer the New York Times one. For further info stick around, you might like the rest of the story.
Dynamo is the perfect forum for young writers and others of the same ilk. You have to love what a magazine can represent and the empowerment that it can instill in its readers. Dynamo provides the ability to tell the story of the Y.B.E. (Young Black Experience). Everything from poverty to social issues will be addressed and it’s great that it can be presented in its purest form ever. It is great to be able to write again and with Dynamo we all are going as far as we want. Space isn’t even the limit. See you next go round.
