Edward Spruill Youth self-esteem builder
National Motivational Speaker
Edward Spruill is a talented author, whose ability to overcome his personal disability of Dyslexia has given him extreme insight into how to reach the child who feels that he is unable to have, create or achieve their personal goals.
Growing up in Baltimore, he was labeled as slow due to the fact that being dyslexic was not recognized at that time. His entire young life he was told that he was not college material and should seek a trade. It was not until his senior year at Florida State University that he was diagnosed as being dyslexic. Although it took 10 years longer to graduate from college than most students, at the age of thirty-one Edward received his Bachelors of Science in Education with a specialization in reading from Florida State University. He is true to his mantra, “Never Lose Your Dream.”
In addition to his abilities as a writer and educator, Edward has developed his talent as an artist, a skill that he did not discover until after he was married and had his first child. He collaborates on his books with his wife Sonya, who is also an educator. The essences of the stories are based on the thought provoking questions of his young son, Jordan, the main character in his books.
Edward's presentations are not only informative but entertaining as well. Using music & humor along with effective motivating topics, it is easy to see why Edward's clients predict him to be one of the Top National Motivational Speakers.
