“I had the good fortune of listening to you speak at our professional development day at Summit Academy on January 20th, 2014. Your message was so powerful and clear to me! To understand that everyone has a story – whether it be good, bad or ugly. To be more understanding of others and show compassion; to not be so quick to judge and instead to be more tolerant.
Thank you for sharing your stories and struggles with us and being so open with your lives and experience. You guys are TRULY AMAZING & INSPIRING! To hear where you came from and to see where you are today, it’s just beyond words.”
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!!!-
