7. Samuel Chow

Crime: Armed robbery

Samuel Chow was convicted of armed robbery and served 11 years in prison. After his release, Chow wanted to turn his life around and found a job as a storeman. He states that his boss was kind enough to teach him the ropes of running a business and was so encouraged that he applied for many various jobs all of which declined his offer.

Finally, ten years later, he started his own paint and hardware store and has had 12 ex-offenders on his payroll. Currently, Chow has stepped forward to become the face of the Yellow Ribbon Project, a campaign to encourage employers to give ex-offenders a second chance.
