In life, you aren’t always dealt the greatest hand. Some have managed to make the best of what they were given, and some have not. Nasser’s message is about taking what life gives you and turning it into something powerful.
As a young person he made some very un-wise decisions. Nasser was kicked out of school at 16, grew up in a fatherless home, was a teenage father himself, and watched an uncle die of H.I.V. and AIDS, only to turn it all around to become a leader and inspiration. Combining humor with real life stories, Nasser weaves a tale of making poor choices into a message of hope and encouragement.
When life threw everything at him, he was able to overcome the odds. No matter where a young person is, Nasser’s story of hope, redemption, and perseverance will resonate in their lives. His story is a forty-five minute journey of ups and downs, disappointments, mixed with humor and passion. In an amazing twist of fate (surely to rock your audience’s shoes), Nasser will share something he hasn’t shared with any groups in the previous 16 years.
Nasser Jones speaks about the value of taking action and “breaking through” adversity is the key to taking life to the next level. Your students won’t be disappointed!
