Student Testimonials


I really liked having you at my school. I’m not a fan, but your story really made me open my eyes. Yesterday, I was watching TV when I saw Sugar Ray, then I remembered he used to call you ‘candle’ because one blow and you’re out—that’s really funny. You’re a very artistic and courageous person. Listening to you speak was very energetic, and truthful; you opened up about a lot of things. I would like to get one of your books so I could get to know a little more about you. You are an amazing, outgoing person. Thank you for coming to my school, SATEC @ W.A. Porter. Keep up the good work!

“I strongly appreciate that you honoured us with one of your persuasive motivational speeches. We are immensely thankful you came to our school and told us stories of your life. It made me realize the hardships of life, and that you can overcome them no matter what situation you’re in. The students and I are very grateful that you visited us and we hope to see you again in the near future.”

“Thank you so much for inspiring me to follow my dreams. You have proven that hard work pays off, and if you don’t dive up on yourself, even if everyone has, you can still achieve your goals. I’m very sorry that you had to go through so much in your life, but because of your life experiences, you’ve changed and inspired many people’s lives. Thank you once again for showing me that hard times can make you a better person in the future.”
