You Matter: Graduation Message


I was presented with the opportunity to be the guest speaker at a graduation ceremony in the Bronx for The Osborne Association on Friday, March 11, 2016. The title of my message was: “You Matter.” (Watch video below). It was an honor to meet with the staff and be able to speak into the lives of their graduates from the Justice Community Program, The Fatherhood Initiative and the Career Center.

When I was invited, back in December 2015, I had never heard of the organization. However, as I started to research them, it became apparent that the Osborne Association is making a tremendous impact in NY state. Here is their Mission Statement:

 “The Osborne Association offers opportunities for individuals who have been in conflict with the law to transform their lives through innovative, effective, and replicable programs that serve the community by reducing crime and its human and economic costs. We offer opportunities for reform and rehabilitation through public education, advocacy, and alternatives to incarceration that respect the dignity of people and honor their capacity to change.”

The fulfillment of our goals in life HINGE ON OUR ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE. However, very few people are comfortable with public speaking. Yet, speaking with others is a critical skill that connects to every area of our lives! Whether we are talking about our dreams or giving a presentation at work, the quality of our interactions with those around us will determine the level of our progress.
