"I’m fifteen years old and a grade ten student at the school you talked to today. I wanted to say you did a brilliant job. I have NEVER seen any speaker come to my school and reach an audience the way you did. It was hilarious, and you still managed to get the point across.
Secondly, I want to say thanks for the motivation. I have been having a lot of self-doubts and been dealing with some not-so-nice girls and gossip lately. Something about the way you talked about bullies just made me feel a lot better about my problem. I feel like I can handle it. Also, your speech on challenges hit me hard. I mean, I’ve always thought of myself as brave and able but I know I turn down challenges and when the going gets tough, I leave. But now I know that I can meet challenges and do well if I try, care and work. I just really loved the presentation today (as I KNOW everyone else did)! You are truly an inspiration.
Thanks a million!"
