About Semi Bird
M. Semi Bird is a Constitutional Christian Conservative who started his life’s journey in the ghetto of East Oakland, California. He was born to a single mother of seven children, prior to the passing of the Civil Rights Act.
Semi’s mother raised him in a Christian environment, where he was always held accountable for his actions. ‘Victim mentality’ was not to be tolerated in her household for the simple reason that Mrs. Bird believed firmly in taking control of one’s own destiny despite outside circumstances. In her eyes, this would ensure Semi and his siblings’ growth into strong, independent, resilient, and positive-contributing members of society.
Though Semi struggled in K-12 and dropped out of high school after completing his junior year, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, knowing that if he wasn’t furthering his education, he better be prepared to make something of himself, some way, somehow. This set him on a path where he’d eventually enroll in the U.S. Army in 2001. From there, despite his lack of schooling, he had positioned himself for a bright future. And that is all his mother had ever hoped for: a child who could take care of himself in this tough world.
