Our keynote speech will be delivered by Dr. James A. Williams, author of From Thug to Scholar: An Odyssey to Unmask My True Potential. Dr. Williams is an energetic and passionate speaker who provides personal anecdotes, induces critical thinking, and details thought-provoking solutions to common issues. Throughout his speech, you will be forced to challenge your current mindset and belief system. Introspection and self-reflection will reveal your unique identity. Finding that unique identity will help you identify your true passions and overall purpose in life.
“Visualize your future existence with a big picture and choose your path wisely−what you contrive visually with your mind, you can obtain−a negative or a positive” -- Dr. James A. Williams
