Hello, everyone! As many of you know, I was the winner of a scholarship to Youth Speaker University!
YSU is an online speaking school that will teach me the ins and outs of speaking and the business surrounding it! I am being mentored by one of the TOP YOUTH SPEAKERS IN THE WORLD... Mr. Josh Shipp!
As part of this scholarship, I receive 2 free tickets to Rock The Stage in San Jose, CA, on June 13th, 2014. It is a speaking workshop where I get to hang out with Josh
and his team, get hands-on assistance with my business, and develop lasting relationships with them! Normally
, I would go alone to save money, but being in a wheelchair
, I require
someone to be with me for assistance
. In this case, Breelagh, my amazing
girlfriend (for those of you who don't know), will be going with me! I will need to figure out how to fly, how to travel once I'm there, and how to maneuver around the hotel room (to bed, bathroom, etc.). On top of all of these obstacles, there is the financial side of it. The cost of 2 round-trip plane tickets, the hotel, and the rental of a handicap van is steep! Just like with everything in my life, I will find a way
, but if you feel it in your heart
me and Breelagh and sponsor our trip, we would be very
appreciative! EVERY DOLLAR HELPS!
Speaking is going to be my livelihood (my future
) and Rock The Stage 2014 will go a long
way in making that reality come sooner!
P.S. There are some pretty great rewards
, if I say so myself!
P.S.S. Sponsoring me or not sponsoring me, thank you for reading this and caring, from the bottom of my heart!
Much love and respect,
