Hi! I’m Tawan,

As a Student Leadership Motivational Speaker, my mission is to help equip students with the skills and confidence they need to become successful leaders. Studies have shown that student leadership is a crucial factor in determining student success, fostering a sense of responsibility and accountability, while also providing an opportunity for students to hone their communication and interpersonal skills.
My goal is to help students learn how to become effective leaders, by teaching them the proper skills to lead, such as developing a positive attitude, building resiliency, and learning how to communicate effectively in our digital world. Through this, I will empower your students to lead and make a lasting impact on your campus.

“Fabulous!!  I just attended the NC Basic Skills Conference in Winston-Salem, NC. Your speeches were amazing!!  I was one of the ones who climbed up in my chair and shouted with you as you encouraged us to “raise the bar”!  Inspired by YOU and your passion for education, I will challenge myself to do more for my ESOL students!!  Being a seasoned instructor, it takes a lot to stir my emotions and creativity, but you have sparked that extra creative flair. Deeply touched by “The Pledge to Myself”, tears streamed down my cheeks as I repeated after you. I just wanted to take a moment and say, Thank YOU!!!

Darlene Flynt


“Tawan is a great speaker with an awesome attitude. Tawan was able to captivate and hold the attention of students who would otherwise have been sleeping or enjoying the wonderful day outside. I recommend him for your student leadership conference!”
