Speaking Topics:
 
A broad range of issues as they relate to the spectrum of social development.  

What would you tell the youth of Cayman today if you had a microphone in your hand and 60 seconds?

I would say that every individual has a special gift within them that can make their lives better and can make the world a better place.  I would remind them that they are loved and will continue to be loved until and even after they have the strength and courage to love themselves. I would tell them that they deserve to have the best that this life has to offer and they achieve this if they give of their best selves.  I would remind them that they are held to high standards and that once they adopt these standards for themselves they will achieve their full potential. I would remind them that their past does not dictate their future and that they can choose to create their own lives. I would also suggest that they adopt the Four Agreements popularized by Miguel Ruiz’ book of the same name.
