A Relatable Personality

Stephen’s story of his climb to Professional athlete is relatable to students. Stephen shares stories about his rise to X-Games competitor to help students understand that every climb requires hard work and many “crashes” along the way. Students easily relate to Stephen often not recognizing that he isn’t one of them since he is riding a bike and speaking on pertinent issues.

Stephen’s Story: Students connect with my story because I’ve been bullied and had to overcome this and other challenges on my journey. When I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dream of becoming a professional BMX athlete, I was only living there 6 weeks when I encountered a violent interaction with a bully. I had to make a hard decision between giving up my dream and returning to my home in PA or continuing my path in Los Angeles. I share this story of bullying and perseverance during my assemblies.
