My job as a motivational speaker requires that I travel to various schools and communities through out the United States as well as some other countries. Although I take great pride in delivering a message to youth, teachers and community members that can be both compelling and inspiring, the travel can take its toll. I have seen over the years how one must learn to have a lot of patients. You may wonder, “Why do it?” I cannot count the number of lives that have been impacted by the message. Everyone wants to believe in the possibility of making it in life, achieving ones dreams. I, as well as the other members of Homeboy Goes to Harvard Productions, provide a living example of that possibility. For this reason alone, I endure and will continue with my travels. This time it takes me to Las Vegas, New Mexico. There I will give a keynote presentation at a youth conference designed to educated high school students on life after high school. Lets hope for a powerful impact.
