Introduction: Valentine is a premier youth motivational speaker on a mission to inspire students to recognize the profound impact of their stories. As educators sow seeds of courage, confidence, and unity, Valentine steps in as a gardener, nurturing positive messaging. Sharing his own story, lessons, and mistakes, he emphasizes, "I'm not here for my accomplishments but my mistakes, spawning lessons that guide, correct, and encourage each of you." Counted out one too many times, Valentine's resilient message draws from his experiences as an inner-city EMT and media professional, creating an engaging, heartfelt, and relatable student experience. His authentic speaking unveils personal obstacles, from a fatherless upbringing to overcoming anxiety, with the purpose of healing through shared understanding. Valentine not only offers himself as a vessel but, more significantly, as a living example. He believes in the transformative power of education and understanding, recognizing that the true strength of our stories lies in these principles.

Mr. Valentine is an excellent addition to our program! He took the time to send preparation material that motivated the students and made them look forward to his visit, all while working with the needs of our school. He took the time after the assembly to meet with students in small groups. They loved every minute of this! He truly helped them self reflect and motivated each student to think about their actions and feelings. This is where he excelled and the most valuable part of his visit! Anthony seemed nervous at first, but was able to shift gears and engage our students well. He was well received and our students are already asking when he will return!

It is clear when Anthony speaks to young people that he loves what he does! And young people respond to him and need to hear his message.

Exceptional!!! Anthony took the time to meet with staff prior to the event through a face to face meeting via google as well as pre-surveying our staff. He took that information and personalized it to our school needs. Anthony provided our school with a teaser video and launch page prior to his visit to our school building. On the day of the event, both students and staff were inspired, motivated, and validated by his energy, attentiveness and authentic interactions. He stayed with our school community throughout the day following the assemblies. He visited classrooms and sat with students during their lunch waves continuing to spread messaging of value, worth and belief that each of us have the unique opportunity to create powerful legacies every day! Anthony was wonderful and as a school community we were enriched by his presence.

This is the second time that Anthony has come to our school to speak to our students, who were beyond excited to have him return. He has such an empowering message of following your dream and being the best version of you. He connects well with our students, makes them feel valued and has relevant material to share with them. He motivates, he is innovative, and extremely professional. We hope to have him back again in the future.
