    I would like to recommend and submit Yvonne Williams. I have never seen a person relentlessly give so much every day! Yvonne uses her life experience of hardship, pitfalls and having to overcome adversity as a platform to encourage individuals to be all that they can be despite their current situations or present dilemmas. Yvonne’s past and future success has inspired millions of people. Being born in extreme poverty and having to overcome being abused from the age of three to thirteen by a drug addicted step father and trying to protect her two younger brothers who were reduced to drinking water out of the toilet Yvonne ran away from home at the age of thirteen and turned to a life of drug dealing, alcoholism and constant fighting. At the age of sixteen she was homeless pregnant and in a abusive relationship with a drug dealing boyfriend, after years of suffering abuse which she thought to be the norm because it was all she knew, Yvonne made a drastic change that lead her to a life dedicated to helping any and everyone that would listen to her hoping that no-one would ever feel the pain that she felt as a child. Yvonne is currently the number one speaker in the U.S. for youth and young adults, she travels the nation speaking to any and every size audience from the most notable places to the places most people would never dare to go. Overcoming vast hardship has qualified her to address a vast range of topics that our youth and young adults battle every day. She gives more than she could ever receive as a mother, wife, CEO, that travels sometimes in four different states in a day. Mainly working with clients that have very limited budgets but unlimited needs she created a product line (i-inspire products) that provides scholarships as well as help fund her passion to reach youth and young adults that other wise would never experience a true example of relentless resilience. Her passion is unmatched as she Relentlessly Transform Passion Into Action and delivers NOT just Motivation but, LIFE changing Inspiration!
