As a former at-risk teen who later became a middle and high school teacher, Kimyung Kim understands the needs of today’s youth. His mission is to help young people by changing the culture inside their schools. His message is geared toward the entire student body, and challenges all students to be an agent of change right where they are.

All the while, he speaks from the heart and connects with students by being fully authentic about his own life story. Keeping them engaged throughout his presentation, he shares transparently about good times and bad times alike, inspiring and empowering them to tap into the same life-changing principles that have helped him become a person of character who lives to make a difference. Students are captivated by his message, listening intently as he helps them understand their self worth, change their attitudes about how they treat each other, and discover that they can make a difference in the world around them.
