Recorded live in front of over 4,000 in attendance at the 25th Annual United States Hispanic Leadership Conference in Chicago, Illinois. “The Tell Me No, I Say Yes” tells the story of one Latino’s journey from being “just another statistic” on the streets of Newark, New Jersey to becoming a published writer, poet, educator, speaker and entrepreneur. His journey took him through urban schools that didn’t understand his social, economical and cultural background. Many of his high school teachers told him he would never amount to anything; one teacher once called him, “the greatest piece of garbage he had ever seen.”
Yet the love and support of his family and his drive, passion and dreams led him to overcome those obstacles and pursue a career of life learning and educational success, being the first person in his family to graduate from college with honors. His experiences have led him to always remind Latino youth to, “never, ever, ever let anyone tell you who you are or what you will become. That’s your destiny to fulfill, no one else’s.”
His obsession with living life completely and passionately is only rivaled by his desire to share his message. He’s been called one of the most dynamic speaker’s under thirty in America today and has the ability to extend the touch of mere spoken words, to transform them into funny, powerful thought-provoking, emotionally charged commentaries about life, education, empowerment and social progress.
He lives his life according to the saying, “life is not measured by the breaths that you take, but rather by the moments in life that take your breath away.” And adds to it by proclaiming, “it doesn’t matter how long you live, it matters what you do while you live.”
