  • I just want you to know that your message was a huge success with the kids and the adults alike. I had two staff members tell me they feel so reinvigorated about SLC and their life/worth in general, and all the students were so pumped up and positive after, as well as myself…I can’t explain it but let’s just say it was exactly what I needed at the exact right time…Everything you said I have believed all my life, but lately I have felt pulled down and beaten up a little, your presentation has given me the strength to rededicate my thoughts and words to be positive and uplifting, instead of negative and destructive!- Thank you!- High school Teacher Leadership Council Advisor
