Failing is a key part of being successful. One shouldn’t be afraid to fail or let failure define you.

So many young people experience issues of poverty, an unstable home life, abuse and more. External pressures are constantly bombarding them, including messages that they aren’t good enough or worthy enough. These factors can lead to poor grades, poor behavior, and poor outcomes.


“D.R.E.A.M. is a way of thinking and being to create the life and success you want. Determination, Responsibility, Embracing Failure, Attitude and Motivation are the keys to finding the path to the best version of yourself.”

As a speaker, I identify the pressures on youth and the experiences that fellow classmates hold close. I share my own struggle to let them know they are not alone. I give examples of everyday situations the youth may find themselves in and the paths before them. I give them tools to handle these situations with the better results. And finally, I provide the hope of a future that doesn’t mirror their past and a window to a life full of promise.

My experience in the army as a Soldier and Drill Sergeant taught me how to manage my anger, adapt to changing situations, and to deal with a variety of people. It gave me the discipline I needed to overcome the challenges of my youth.
