I had the honor of being invited to speak at John Basset Moore Intermediate School in Dover, Delaware on March 2, 2017. They asked me to be a part of their perseverance assembly, which was a great experience. The gym was filled with 5th and 6th graders who were all about to start state testing the next week. They were learning about perseverance, the ability to push through and conquer what ever gets in your path. Hearing about the story of my life and my ability to overcome all the obstacles that have been thrown at me, was a powerful message to some of the students and even the faculty. It is an amazing feeling when you can inspire and motivate others. I look forward to continuing my journey of motivational speaking and inspiring people along the way.
