Hey there, this is Taylor Wallace, ASB president at Encina High School in Sacramento, you might remember me. Wow… I should have sent this letter a long time ago, but hear I am now. Keith, what you did at our school last year people still remember! It was phenomenal, your words of wisdom rocked the inside of that gym! I will never forget that Keith. I know what I’m going to say, you already know but I will say it anyhow. Your message is so perfect and on time, our nations youth is getting wrapped up in the mass media’s idea of the way to live life, and unfortunately most the of the time this leads to heartbreaks and bad decisions. Then Keith Hawkins walked into our school, they said you were a motivational speaker! (more like a life changing speaker) I was excited to see what you would speak about. As soon as I met you, I knew it would be awesome! All the energy, happiness, hilarious comments and positive message. Then you spoke at our assembly, and said everything that everyone of us needed to hear. This was more than just a get off the bench and get in the game thing, your message tore down the pessimism, negativity and most of all, the mind set that our teenage minds have been filled with. I just needed to say that because what you're doing is right! It’s amazing, and I aspire to someday be as influential as you Keith. Thank you.
Thanks for the inspiration,
