“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments that you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.” -Henry Drummond
As a youth speaker for middle and high school kids, I’ve gotten to meet A LOT of people over the years. And one of my favorite humans is Devon Werkheiser. When we are together we gel in such a way that it is always a non-stop laugh-fest!
Devon is the man. And besides our inability to control our laughter when we are together, the thing that makes Devon so special to me is his huge heart!
You probably know Devon as the star of Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide on Nickelodeon. He had a great run on Ned’s and continues to act today in big roles alongside some of today’s biggest stars in movies and on TV.
What is really cool, is how Devon is using his platform and love for art and music to make an impact on young people. His passion is contagious and if he wanted he could be one of the top motivational speakers for youth!
“Young people need to realize it’s okay to be sad. That’s part of the process & it makes you appreciate the good times so much more.” -Devon Werkheiser
I might have to bring Devon on my next tour. We actually discussed that and some of our crazy trips together across the world in depth.
I think you guys will get a kick out of this one and learn a few things too! (I hope.)
