Be a Mentor, Change a Life
In this presentation, speaker Stacey Bess offers three powerful lessons that can change the life of a child, build and empower a family, and improve a community. She shares these lessons by recounting stories as seen through the eyes of underprivileged children.
- Lesson one: Follow through with what you commit to. Bess tells this story through the eyes of Zachary who needed just one person to teach him it was okay to trust.
- Lesson two: Don't hide behind your credentials - get down on the floor and be a human being. Bess shares this story through the eyes of Alex and an NBA basketball star.
- Lesson three: We are a product of what has been given to us. Bess tells this story through the eyes of Sarah, a homeless woman on the streets who used an angry demeanor to protect herself. By simply giving her a coat, Bess was able to change Sarah's outlook and take her into her community, helping Sarah learn that when you are part of a community, you willingly give back to it.
