“The beauty of potential is that, one doesn’t have to be the most popular, the prettiest, the coolest, or the smartest…however; all we have to do is have a vision and have faith that our dreams will come true if we work hard and work smart…  And we water and fertilize our dreams through our heart, our head and our habits…” – David McGhee

  1. “It doesn’t matter if you get knocked down, pushed down or you fall down on your own,there is only one way to get back up.”

  2. Mr. McGhee, I applaud your efforts to reach youth and being a change agent. I would like to speak with you about speaking to a group of young men at Oakland University called the Circle of Brotherhood (COB). THe COB is an all male support group geared toward African American males. The group has open discussions about a range of issues that are of concern to them. In the video you have posted above, you mentioned the importance of shifting your approach. I think that message would resonate with our young men and spark them to think critically bout what has brought them this far in their lives and how they can get further.

    Thanks in advance for your time and consideration,
