My presentations include visual story telling (which is how I reach students from many different backgrounds), using thought provoking imagery, music videos with music produced exclusively for I'm Young And Empowered, Inc. by Thir13eenBeatz.  

Encouraging an ongoing conversation with middle to high school age youth - on the day to day challenges they may be facing.

My approach is conversation and dialogue based.
