Throughout my school years I was bullied, rejected, and totally alienated because I was different. I know what it’s like to be alone, and this is why I really want to reach out to as many people as I can to let them know that they’re not alone, and no matter who they are or how different they might feel, things can and will get better!
This is one of the reasons I write and illustrate a sci-fi comic series called Starkeeper. Some of the topics I talk about are; inclusion vs intolerance, belonging vs alienation, awareness vs prejudice, bullying and perseverance, among other things. My talks usually last between 15 to 20 minutes with a following 10 minute Q & A session.
I have a moderate speech impairment but I have other ways of making myself understood. I can use PowerPoint presentations, overhead projections and, most importantly, I encourage people to ask me to repeat myself if they haven't understood me properly. I am excited to share my message, and I am happy to speak to your class, school, or group. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!Here are some examples of presentations I have made in the past:
