“Juan is one of the most charismatic speakers that we have had at the Summit and has a unique ability to connect with people. He captivated our teens and adults over a virtual platform! His story-telling is so powerful and encouraging and was a true game-changer for the teens that attended our virtual leadership Summit. Juan tells personal stories with messages of perseverance, kindness and passion that resonate with all of us and allow us all to reflect on our paths and how we can continue to make a difference for others. I have no doubt that the countless teens and adults who hear Juan speak will continue to be entertained and inspired. He’s an incredible talent and we would love to have him back next year.”
