I have recently returned from New York, where I spoke at two events. The first, on December 4, was the 13th Annual Youth Leadership Summit at Russell Sage College. It is an event for high school students, and this year’s focus was overcoming odds and thriving. I facilitated three separate workshops and delivered a motivational speech to those three groups. Below is the video of the first session. To bypass the workshop and watch only the speech, fast forward to the 15:00 mark.
