Telvin Goll

Age 18

Phoenix, Arizona

He wished for the American Dream

He moved from West Africa to the United States when he was 3, the American dream in his future.

He wanted to be a doctor and also wanted to be a YouTuber. The 18-year-old posted videos of himself in the car with a friend, dancing in a bathroom to music and vlogging.

On Dec. 29, 2018, in Phoenix, Arizona, five men attempted to rob Telvin Goll. Three of the five men forced open his apartment door and started shooting at him. Phoenix Police Department Sgt. Tommy Thompson said police believe drugs were involved. Goll died at the scene.
