"Sugar Ray Destin is a dynamic speaker who knows how to engage his audience and always leaves them thinking about how they want to actively create their destiny. His own story is captivating because he has stepped out of the box and intentionally dove into his passions regardless of what others expected of him. I have seen him speak at an event and I was blown away by his delivery and his content. I left myself thinking about my own life and what I desired to create and leave behind as my legacy. Leaders of Tomorrow through the Black MBAs in Austin invited him out to participate in the college/career expo and he had an opportunity to converse with several high school students about their life’s purpose. All of the students who spoke with him all left pondering on who they wanted to be in life not just what. People like Sugar Ray are needed to keep the minds and hearts open of our youth today who are our tomorrow. Children are born dreamers and at some point they take on the limitations that others put upon them. I believe Sugar Ray is a messenger who was sent to keep these dreamers dreaming and reaching for the moon. I thank him for what he does and want to see every child on this planet inspired by his message."

"It was a success! When the House Manager Leslie Whitley told you the kids lose interest quick I remember you saying don't worry I can get their attention...and you did! The kids haven't stop talking to about you. The counselors praised your visit and were happy their clients were happy! Remember the blonde girl who said she was going to college but didn't know what she wanted to study. Well, it turns out she is a gifted Artist. She paints abstract paintings. She said this morning she wanted to be a writer or journalist. Sugar Ray, after your speech she & the other kids brains went into overdrive that night and now they are suddenly full of dreams they never really thought about. That's awesome! I really admire the work you do Sugar Ray and we are blessed that you came into our lives at Phoenix House. I have done this work for 7 yrs. People like you motivate me and I (we) need motivation at times. Thank you for giving from your heart! You have a powerful gift from God indeed!"
