Looking for a dynamic
program for your students and
Would you like to have outstanding test scores this year?
The Olympics are about the power of the human spirit. About being willing to work hard, overcome fears, triumph over pain, and conquer mountains that seem insurmountable. The Olympics showcase the best qualities in humankind and inspire others to follow their dreams.
As an Olympian Ruben feels a responsibility to "light the fire" in others. To inspire the next generation to chase their dreams and never settle for less than their full potential. However, Ruben doesnít want to just inspire them. Ruben's goal is for them to understand that poor choices like taking drugs, smoking, or associating with the wrong crowd, will keep them from achieving their goals. His other goal is to teach students simple techniques they can use to excel under pressure. For example, when they are taking tests.
Ruben's story is a vehicle that helps young people learn life lessons.
"I am always amazed at how students will listen and believe just about anything an athlete tells them. For that reason, I make sure to lace my story with the principles of success that helped me on the road to the Olympics. After our time together, I believe both the kids and I are better for it."
