TURNING NEGATIVES INTO POSITIVES
BULLYING & SUICIDE PREVENTION INTERACTIVE ASSEMBLY PRESENTATION
Sporty King is an award-winning speaker who co-founded Hey U.G.L.Y., Inc. He grew up in Harlem, NYC, where he learned to overcome low self-esteem by
recognizing that he is U.G.L.Y. – Unique Gifted Lovable You. He has inspired close to a million students with his U.G.L.Y. story and says one of the best ways to be successful in life is to have healthy self-esteem, a positive attitude, positive vocabulary and intolerance for bullying.
Sporty’s inspirational messages were featured on WGN television affiliate stations across America for over three years. This former Wall Street Journal executive finished as one of the Top 9 speakers in the world in Toastmasters International’s World Championship of Public Speaking.
As he tells the story of his life, he reminds his audience to create the story of their life by believing in themselves and having a positive attitude and vocabulary. He gives practical and empathetic advice on ways to avoid bullying not only of others but of self.
