FIRED UP FOR YOUR FUTURE

Every student is confronted by adversity, challenge and change:
  What will I do when I graduate?
  Will I get a good job?
  Where do I go from here?
  How am I supposed to know what to do next?

In this keynote, Joe teaches how anyone anywhere can overcome perceived limitations and live their dreams. Walk with Joe through the tough streets of East Vancouver in the 1980's and experience the depths and degradation of a former hopeless, homeless drug addict.
