Dreamer are Achievers Youth Conference

 

300+ teenagers (ages 12-15) packed City Hall on Friday night in Carson, CA to get inspired at the 27th annual youth conference. 

 

The night opened with a touching motivational message from 9-year-old, Apollo Powers, who spoke with such conviction that everyone was convinced that nothing will stop him from being his authentic self.  Apollo compelled the audience, proving that the color of his skin is a uniting tool and inspirational asset that will cause any project that is apart of to excel. 

Hearing a 9-year-old identify projects that he is passionate about was eye-opening.  Even at a young age, he demonstrated planned steps that he has taken that contribute to the success of events that he has gotten involved in. Apollo's determination, his ability to create a plan, and his commitment to execution, is exactly the reminder we need to realize that the power is truly inside of all of us, no matter what your age is.
