Lex came to my school and spoke to my affinity group for boys of color. There is no way to THANK him enough. I wish I could put into words the impact he had on my students. His positive approach and relatability had students engaged and focused throughout the entire presentation.
Lex spoke to the boys about the many obstacles they had overcome in their own lives. He detailed the keys to finding success in today’s world. Lex spoke about hard work not being easy and how being young men of color meant that they faced challenges that many others have not.
Lex explained that when he was in middle school he was not focused on academics as much as he should have been. Lex challenged my students to make academics their everyday priority, and assured them that their teachers are their allies, not their enemies.
The look of inspiration on my students’ faces that day was something I will never forget. If you are looking for someone to speak to your students, Lex is your guy! Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these boys.
