Sometimes you have to check what you want and listen to and respect what others need. I would of never became a public speaker if someone did not feel there was a need for a young entrepreneur like myself at the time to come in and provide empowerment programs that would give motivation encouragement and inspiration to youth. A few years after I started speaking someone that I had never met in my life told me that I would write a book. I wanted to be an athlete growing up but the community needed me to be an educator, writer, mentor and activist.
