Hello everyone.

My name is Nick Mendez and I am a 35 year old Hispanic, who is currently doing some short time at Pelican Bay State Prison in California.

Right now it would be a complete blessing to hear from you as I am all alone right now. Please know that I have made some mistakes in some of my choices I have made in life and ended up here.

But, God knows I’m not a bad person. I am interested in hearing from open-minded people of any race or age. I am from San Jose, California, and if God wills I will be there shortly.

Right now I don’t have a picture, but if it interests you I have been told that I am a very

From behind 20 foot walls, razor-wired fences, and guntowers I sit here and write.

California Write Sherri Mullen – Inmate Penpal #071811-0342

 July 18, 2011  ¤  Female Inmates Age 18 - 21

Hello to everyone reading this. I am a 20 year old aries.

I love reading, writing, math, foreign languages, singing, music, my iPad, swimming and having a good time.

Even though I have put myself in this unfortunate position, I aspire to be better in the future. “Never Again Once More” is tattooed on my right shoulder. It means never again will I be the same as I was yesterday, but once more I will change to better myself today. I made that quote to better myself with each day I live.

When I leave here I would like to become an aviation mechanical engineer and work for foreign airlines. I let a lot of foolish things stop me from reaching my full potential.

I always tried to catch a dream that wasn’t meant for me, or be with someone who wasn’t for me. Not anymore. I don’t
