Editor, the Advocate:
I would like to express my genuine appreciation to Joe Anthony Pena, of Hair Dimensions Salon, for serving as a motivational speaker for East High AVID students.
You are a dynamic and vibrant voice and have a gift of capturing the attention of your audience and planting the seed of hope and possibility. Your life experiences and the challenges you overcame are truly inspiring to all of us.
Your presentation was thought-provoking and powerful and really hit home with not only our students, but with us adults, too. It doesn't matter where you came from or how other people perceive you. If you believe in yourself and are willing to work hard, you really can accomplish anything.
You are a role model, and your presentation was the best experience our students could have had.
You are not only amazing in the salon but also truly amazing as a speaker!
