Guest Speaker: Rodney Walker

The hard-knock life for author, entrepreneur and inspirational speaker Rodney Walker started when he was 5 years old. He spent the next 12 years in Chicago’s foster care system, until he ran away and ended up homeless for several months.

Come hear the story of his journey from foster care to ivy leaguescholar.

“Rodney’s story of perseverance, determination, and hope is one for the ages. His life’s journey is one that will inspire anyone, no matter where they’re from.”
