Featured Speaker: Cam F. Awesome, “Flying Fish: To Dumb too be Discouraged”
Community Moment: Ryan King
Musical Guest: The Pharaohs

Description: I believe in setting a goal too big to accomplish the first try. Fail. Fail again. Fail until you’re expected to fail. At some point you will fail at failing by succeeding. It takes an ignorance of your situation to not be discouraged. The flying fish spends every second of every minute of every hour of every day failing at flying. But it doesn’t get discouraged and stop trying. Although it has failed 100% of attempts, its name is “flying fish” and it is the best fish that flies by just trying. My life is very similar to this. I describe this with boxing, stand-up comedy, and my speaking career.

About the speaker:
Cam Awesome is a boxer, stand-up comedian and keynote speaker. While only 28, Cam believes age is a general estimate of life experience. Cam has lived a life that has provided valuable life lessons. His strong message resonates with youth, due to the perceived value of a personality with a large social media following.
