Last week, I had speaking engagements in Dallas and Forth Worth, Texas, thanks to my old friend Bob Hopkins, who I met when he was Executive Director of The Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation. Bob Hopkins is now teaching for Tarrant County College.
Before I go any further, I want to thank every student for taking the time to come hear me speak. It would have not been a success without their involvement. Thank you all, for your time and kindness.
At Eastfield College, my friend Patrick O’Dooley emceed the event in front of 50 students. He stood beside me during Q and A, he and I fielding questions that the students had.
I met Patrick during one of his motivational classes a few years ago. Patrick was one of the first people I have met who was instrumental in making me feel good about myself and making every day a TREMENDOUS day! I’m thankful Patrick was there for me!
In attendance at the speaking engagements were two professors of Sociology and Environmental Sciences, from Collin College. I spoke UP CLOSE and PERSONAL. The President of Tarrant County South College, addressed the students and stayed for my speech there.
By my sixth speech in two days, I’m told I was a pro and that my speaking abilities were great. Bob said I had every class in the palm of my hands!: > ) Bob said he was proud of me. That’s a tremendous compliment coming from someone who speaks as well as Bob Hopkins.
