It was exciting to see the young men engaged in your activities, energized about your presentation, and inspired by your challenges.

In my observations, the adults enjoyed your presentation as much as the youth. It is so important for young men of color to see positive role models. It was powerful to witness their demeanor change as you had them repeat their affirmations. Thank you for sharing your time and expertise.”
