My Experience

Dewayne Smithers is a Youth Motivational Speaker, Author, Spoken Work & Hip Hop Artists from Lexington, Ky.

Dewayne dropped out of High School at 18 but received his GED at 24 and graduated from Eastern Kentucky in 2005 with B.A in Broadcasting & Communications. Since then he’s successfully presented his message, spoken word & hip hop nationally and internationally at various detention centers, NFL Hall of Fame Events, colleges, churches, and schools.

Having overcome low self-esteem, depression, stereotypes and many of life’s obstacles, Dewayne strives to pass this knowledge on to the youth of this generation, our future leaders. His relentless optimism and story of victory truly inspires people to battle through anything and use their trials as a golden opportunity to shape the present and future as they desire to live. One of his favorite quotes comes from an ancient writer “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desired is fulfilled, it becomes a tree of life.” His passion is to teach our youth not to lose hope and how to fulfill their dreams. He would enjoy the opportunity to present to your students this school year or next. Let me come and rock with your youth.
