Project Description

Christopher P. Gardner is living proof that dreams can come true. He is the head of his own brokerage firm in Chicago and lives in a Chicago townhouse filled with a collection of tailored suits, designer shoes and Miles Davis albums. Although, his path to success came through extraordinary events. Only 20 years ago, Gardner was homeless and living, on occasion, in a bathroom at a Bay Area Rapid Transit Station. His road to success is documented in his first book, “The Pursuit of Happyness” and recently made its way to film screens starring Will Smith as Gardner. Gardner’s inspiring story illustrates how belief in yourself and your dreams can catapult you to success.
