Calling All Hope Dealers! Everyone Has a Story, Every Story Deserves Heroes
Hasan Davis, CEO & Founder of Hasan Davis Solutions
Hasan will share his experience of often interrupted transitions through education, justice, and social support systems. Simultaneously navigating learning disabilities, poverty and delinquency, Hasan seemed destined to become another statistic. But, Hasan was lucky to find that on his journey there were champions, like his mother and alternative school teacher, who found ways to engage, encourage and empower him. With the support of these “Hope Dealers,” Hasan was able to transcend his mounting list of “failures” to become an advocate for himself and eventually a champion for others experiencing difficult times.
Hasan will share some of the core strategies and creative thinking that these Hope Dealers deployed to help him find the courage to complete what he calls the “JD shuffle” going from Hasan Davis, Juvenile Delinquent to Hasan Davis, Juris Doctor. Come ready to celebrate, recharge and recommit to being the Hope Dealers that you are, the Heroes their stories deserve
