The Future of Youth: hanging out with A-State UPstanders!

 

As a youth motivational speaker, I get to meet some of the best and brightest students on the planet.I had the truest honor to speak about the importance of being an UPstander and not a bystander at Arkansas State University. I was welcomed by the incredible students of the Student Activities Board before speaking to over 400 students. I even learned how to throw up the Red Wolves sign!

We covered a wide range of topics from standing up and being a designated driver to speaking up on issues of bullying, racism, sexism, homophobia, and more. This was my first time visiting Arkansas and I hope it won’t be my last time. Arkansas State University is a special place with very special students doing great things. I immediately felt like a part of the ASU community. Anyone who believes that young people are not doing positive things needs to visit the home of the A-State Red Wolves!

Partnering w/NFL’s Aaron Rodgers & Emmanuelle Chriqui for Congo

As a youth speaker, I enjoy motivating youth across the globe. As part of the Raise Hope for Congo campaign and the Conflict Free Campus Initiative, I traveled to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to partner with NFL Greenbay Packers player Aaron Rodgers and actor Emmanuelle Chriqui. The goal of the event was to raise awareness on how materials in our electronics products are coming from a war zone that Oprah Winfrey calls "the worst place to be a woman."
