“[Brian Barton’s] speech and presentation was incredibly open and honest, and practically every student was attentive and engaged throughout his speech. He shared both the successes and the challenges in his life and it was made explicitly clear that if he can overcome all of these challenges, then there is no excuse for everyone in the audience to do the same. He presented very interesting pictures cialis from his trips around the world. He discussed and opened up possibilities that our students never considered. Many of our students have never traveled outside of their neighborhoods and to see and hear someone who travels the world and who shared those experiences through pictures and words was truly captivating.

Not only were students enthralled and impressed with Mr. Barton, but the staff was impressed with the quality of Mr. Barton’s life and fully agreed that he was a wonderful speaker and role model for our students. Our students and staff were so inspired and moved by Mr. Barton’s speech, that they are hoping that we can invite him back again to see and hear about the next chapter(s) in his amazing and impressive young life.

I strongly recommend and encourage any institution interested in motivating and inspiring a student body, staff, or other group of employees, to consider enlisting the services of Mr. Brian Barton. As an educator, this young man is exactly who I want my students to emulate.”

The mission also consists of living a fulfilled life by taking advantage of new opportunities and continuously pursuing my quest for knowledge - by meeting new people, traveling to new places, and being receptive to new ideas. My ultimate goal is to place a hand in impacting and enhancing the lives of others.
