L.I.V.E. Through It!
On March 30, 2019, I had the awesome opportunity to serve as a keynote speaker at The “Why You?” Initiative, Inc., [YU?] Confab 2019. In 2011, Dr. Renaldo C. Blocker and Dr. Antonio M. Daniels founded the nonprofit organization to empower the success of high school students through young professionals by effectively delivering support using technological along with traditional mediums. With enormous success year after year, [YU?] has targeted socially and economically disadvantaged communities and has impacted students as well as young professionals across the nation. The [YU?] Confab provides an opportunity for participants to be exposed to a variety of activities that includes panel discussions, cutting-edge presentations, educational tours, personal and professional development, and thought-provoking workshops.
The theme was "Hope In The Hard" so I shared some of my experiences. If you have read my book or have heard my story, then you know I understand all too well the anguish of a plight that appears to be a permanent situation. Even right now as I finalize this edition of my newsletter, I am in the midst of a very hard place. My situation definitely hurts at times, but I must keep going and trusting God. With God on my side, I remind myself that I am not exempt from having the challenges, but I am equipped to overcome the challenges. Despite what the situation looks like, I will L.I.V.E. Through It!
Be Blessed and L.I.V.E.!
