"Omar’s talk completely changed the way I encourage and motivate my students in their educational journey. He was thought-provoking and offered practical methods to enhance ones love for education. Also, his book is a must-read for the education-based professional!”

“Omar came to speak at Queens University of Charlotte to share his passionate educational journey with my pre-service teachers during our Needs of Diverse Learners class. My Students were completely mesmerized by his charismatic storytelling and inspired that he had overcome so many obstacles to reach his dreams. Omar was generous enough to lead my students in an interactive activity from the Theater of the Oppressed, and the reflective conversation that followed was amazingly impactful for my students. Omar is a gifted orator and writer, a servant leader, and an incredible friend.  He continues to inspire me to provide high impact experiences to create a bridge of equity and connection for our youth."

Just wanted to say ‘BRAVO’! Thank you for bringing such a motivational speaker to our students. I am thrilled that as educators we have school on this day, a day to educate and remind students of who and why Martin Luther King Day is celebrated. I do believe seeds do get planted!  Omar planted seeds today."
