  • "Hi Brandon, I am a teacher at Polk Street School and saw your assembly today. I didn't have the opportunity to speak to you after, but I wanted to tell you how amazing you were. I think what you said was so important and done so in a way that could really and truly reach children. I've been to a few youth motivational assemblies before, and yours was truly outstanding. You and your words were both moving and inspiring! Keep doing what you're doing. You're awesome at it!"  Mr. White truly did an amazing job!
