Eli Owczarzak, Sophomore at Ferris State University
When I was a junior in high school at Kalamazoo Central, you came and spoke to my whole school. Even after four years I still remember the performance and what an impact on me it made. I take every chance I get to tell people about your work and what it did for me. Thank you for your time and thank you for everything you do.
Hi, I graduated from high school at Kalamazoo Central 3 years ago…I just wanted to let you know that lately, whenever I need something empowering, I listen to your words. Since graduating I’ve moved to New York and I’ve been sharing your words and stories here and you’ve got many fans here now. I hope you’re both doing well, and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you.-
…I was at Lakeside Academy and attended the classes that were put on by Speak It Forward. I loved and appreciated what you did for me and my fellow peers. It has been almost a year and a half since I left and I’m doing much better now. The things you taught me I still use to this day. Thank you.-
I still wear my shirt from your first performance downtown Kalamazoo. Circa 2006 or so… You guys are the TRUTH!!!-
