The author of the best-selling memoir "The Other Wes Moore," Wes Moore believes everyone is capable of greatness. “Potential is universal,” he says. “Opportunity is not.” Martin Luther King Jr. dedicated his life to extolling the importance of achieving and living up to one’s potential. Both King and Moore believe that the bridge between those two poles--potential and achievement--is bridged by education.
In this powerful keynote, Moore shares the very personal story of how education and mentorship turned his life around. He urges audiences to recognize the potential within themselves and to live up to it, regardless of the barriers and obstacles they may encounter along the way.
