2009 Mega Agent Program - Inspiring Words from Liz Murray

If you haven't seen any of the guest speakers at a Mega Agent Camp, you are really missing out.  These strong and passionate individuals will provoke thought and pull at both your heart and your mind.  After listening to these speakers, there is but one single conclusion - "The only thing holding you back is you."

Meet Liz Murray

Liz Murray is no ordinary young woman.  She was born into a loving family.  However, her parents were addicted to drugs and at age 15 she found herself homeless.  She ended up sleeping in subways.  Without a strong (or any) family support system, she was able to finish high school and enter Harvard on a full scholarship from the New York Times. 

Stop Waiting for Change to Come to You

Liz Murray has a compelling story.  She understood that that you have to stop waiting for change to come to you.  She created a personal vision of where she wanted to be and set out to reach her goal.  She saw with great clarity that education mattered and summoned the courage to achieve her goal of going to Harvard.  In her speech, she described how she tackled what seemed like an insurmountable goal with small steps.  In the end, she refused to be a victim of her environment and took control of her life.  It wasn't easy and it wasn't without sacrifice.  Her message can be boiled down to one simple word - perseverance.

Sharon - Pretty amazing story.  She explained how she was homeless.  The highest aspiration of some of the people around her was to get their next welfare check.  She lived on the "D" line, went to school, and studied where she could.  Her story is pretty amazing.
