Charles Russell Leone

San Antanio, TX            

Hi. My name is Charles Russell Leone IV and I am excited to share my story.

Ever since I was a little kid, I loved outdoor activities. However, when I say that, I don’t mean outdoors as only playing sports. Having said that, sports were a huge part of my childhood, teenage years, and they still make up a huge part of my life. Besides being physically active, I’ve always enjoyed contributing to different organizations. I’m a very social person who likes to help others and make new friends.  When you ask someone who knows me well to tell you one thing about Charles Russell Leone IV, they will often say that I genuinely love people and thrive on relationships. All my hobbies gave me the opportunity to meet new people. Although there were folks from all different backgrounds, most of them were my age and they shared same interests and passions.

I grew up in San Antonio, Texas. My parents are big believers in God and community, so we attended church every Sunday. Religion and faith are something that became a part of my life from an early age. Even though my mom and dad both had jobs, we made it a tradition to have dinner together every day. My parents, my sister Christiana and I would sit at the table and say a prayer. Then we would eat our meal and spend some time together talking further and then maybe watching TV afterwards. Mom and dad always gave Christiana and me chores like taking out the trash or walking the dog. They would pay us a couple of dollars a week, and we were happy to earn them. Then we’d go out and spend that money on ice-cream. Looking back, these responsibilities gave me a sense of purpose and were foundational in teaching me self-reliance. In summary, I would say I had a pretty amazing and loving childhood.

As I said, religion was always a huge part of my life. When I was in 9th grade, I decided to join Teen Life at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Every Sunday evening, we would get together to celebrate Mass. After Mass, all of us would gather to talk and say prayers. We would form smaller groups and discuss all kinds ideas and perspectives related to religion. Through those conversations, I made many friends who had the same ideals as I had.

I met one of my best friends there. When I met him, his smile seemed like it was hiding something deeper. When he saw he couldn’t keep it in anymore, he told me he was depressed. It took a lot of time for him to open up to me, and we shared stories about our lives. He was feeling particularly down one day. So, I sat next to him and told him the following: “God promises to make something good out of the storms that bring devastation to your life.” He started to cry. I hugged him and promised that he will always have a friend in me. We decided to make a pledge to one another. I, Charles Russell Leone IV, swear I will always be by my friend’s side, no matter what. He made the same pledge.
