Introduction: Valentine is a top youth motivational speaker, and his mission is to uplift and inspire students to understand the power of their stories. As educators make efforts in planting the seeds of courage, confidence, and unity in all students. Valentine shows up as a gardener to help water and reinforce positive messaging that educators share. Valentine shares his story, his lessons, and his mistakes as an indicator and a reference for students. As he puts it," I'm not here because of my accomplishments, I am here because of my mistakes. The mistakes that spawned lessons, that in turn provided direction, which later provided correction and now can provide encouragement for each and every one of you." As an individual counted out one too many times, Valentine's messaging of resilience, his experiences as an EMT in the inner city, his work in media, provide an experience for students that is engaging, heartfelt, captivating, and relative. Through his authentic, motivational speaking, Valentine shares the obstacles he has faced, from growing up without a father present to his challenge with anxiety, his crafted messages have the intention to heal. Valentine offers himself as a vessel, but more importantly as an example. The power of our story is only understood through education and understanding.

Anthony captures the audience with his charismatic yet humble personality. He has the ability to connect with students in very real and profound way. Anthony is creative in his delivery and always keeps his audience guessing as to what he will do or say next. He makes it fun and interactive for the students. His heartfelt overall message is both clearly received and memorable. It is evident that his life and career experiences have given him the tools needed to be the outstanding motivational speaker that he is. We at West Orange Middle Schools were delighted and grateful to have Anthony visit us. Thank you Anthony!

I reached out to Mr. Valentine as a potential guest speaker for our district's Freshman Orientation. Mr. Valentine responded immediately and right from the start, myself and our committee felt he was an excellent fit to speak with our students. In the months leading up to the event Mr. Valentine reached out, shared his thoughts on the event and was always the utmost professional. On the day of the event Mr. Valentine showed up early and was ready to interact with our students. His message was well received by both staff and students. After his presentation, he spent extra time with our students, talking further and making those stronger connections. Our students kept saying "everything he said is so true, it makes so much sense". He was the kick start our Freshman needed for this school year. I would highly recommend Mr. Valentine.

Anthony came to speak with our EOP students at SUNY Purchase and he was fantastic. His talk really resonated with our students and he gave them some great reminders about the importance of persisting in the pursuit of their degree.

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.

Valentine is an exceptional speaker and person. He is inspiring, motivating, and amazing at what he does. He came to speak to our students during Diversity Week and he engaged them, made them feel valued, and shared wisdom that is relevant to all of them. Our students are still talking about his speaking engagement and the message he shared with them. I would highly recommend him!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am willing to work with all budgets.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Over 100 hours of mentoring and presenting.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    It all began with a publication I created called KultureMAG. This publication opened doors for me to visit classrooms, high schools, and colleges. On these platforms, I would share my story. From sharing my story, I then developed frameworks and principals that can help one break habits and/or achieve their goals. As of today I have presented at over 30+ high schools and middle schools and over 11,000 students. I love what I do and I hope that my message hits the heart of every listener.
