"FAILURE IS NOT FATAL, SUCCESS IS NOT FINAL: IT IS COURAGE TO CONTINUE THAT COUNTS" Winston Churchill
My name is Joe Webb, and I provide a POWERFUL & PASSIONATE program that helps students understand the importance of education and success. Knowing the smell of failure and experiencing the taste of success, this program will help students understand that failure is not fatal, and success is not final. Growing up, I went from an environment where learning wasn't valued at all to one where it was the highest priority. As an accomplished Higher Education Administrator who's passion is to help students succeed, I would like to propose my program titled "Walking on Both Sides of the Street.. the Road to Academic Success".. This 45 minute presentation is an autobiography that focuses on my life having grown up moving from one foster home to another as a youth, I often walked on the wrong side of the street in search of any form of friendship or attention I could find. I lacked personal guidance, integrity, spirituality, and the luxury of a consistent family. Growing up on the streets, I did not realize the decisions I was making as a youth would come back to haunt me later on down the road as an adult. Thanks to someone who believed in me more than I believed in myself, I was encouraged to consider walking down a path I never imagined...College! Although I feared I would fail, I was excited to have the opportunity to better my life and continue to play football, so I took the risk and submitted an application. To my surprise, I received a football scholarship and was accepted into the ACT 101 program. Throughout my educational journey, I successfully completed a bachelors degree, and built enough confidence to complete a masters degree in education, and is currently pursuing a Doctorate degree in Higher Education Administration.
The road to success is typically not straight. You may encounter a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends and/or Family, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Relationships, and you may experience a few flats along the way. But, you also have a spare tire called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called You, and with hard work and dedication, you will make it to the other side of the street...the Street that leads to the Road of Success.
