This YouTuber used his coins to bless his parents in a huge way.
In an interview with E! News, LeJuan James revealed he recognized the sacrifices that his parents made working day and night to care for him and his siblings.
From working multiple jobs, and even taking overnight shifts in order to provide for the family, his parents did what they had to do to ensure that their children had everything that they needed.
With the odds already stacked against them, James’ parents found themselves in an even deeper financial crisis in 2007 before ultimately losing two homes.
“When you’re young and naive, you don’t understand how hard your parents are working,” said James during an interview with E! News. “My parents would bust their tail working overnights, working multiple shifts, and they’d alternate to take care of us, it was three of us.”
Furthermore, he explained how with maturity and growing up caused him to realize just how hard his parents had it while raising three children and working to take care of his grandmother who had been diagnosed with brain cancer around the time that they hit the financial crisis.
“You don’t really understand until you’re a little older, then you understand the concept of money and how hard it is to get and how easy it is to spend it,” said James. “I remember that at the end of the year in 2016, one of my new year resolutions was to do that for them.”
The Dream Home
At the time, for five months, James secretly worked alongside a realtor to find the best home to repay his parents for all that they’ve done for him and his two siblings over the years.
