Everybody say “Alright! Alright! Alright!”

These were the upbeat opening words from motivational speaker Reggie Dabb who presented an interactive presentation at school assembly on May 7 . Florida-based Dabb is a talented presenter, using humour and song to connect with young people as he delivers key messages of hope and the need for everyone to have a love-of-self. He reminded students that everyone goes through difficult life phases and it’s important to be there for each other. “What if you can be someone’s hope?” he said. Dabb emphasised “Never give up on the ride of life” and “You can’t change your past but you can change your future.”
