In my speech, “The Success Blueprint,” I share my story and outline a proven 5-step plan that your students can use to achieve success in their own lives.

Born into extreme poverty and surrounded by drugs and violence, I learned first-hand the challenges and obstacles that young people can face. But through determination, hard work, and a commitment to service, I was able to overcome these challenges and find success in my life.
