Keynote Speaker: Mona Dixon, Teen Empowerment Leader, Author, and Success Coach
Mona Dixon and her family lived on the streets and moved from one homeless shelter to another until she turned 13 years old. A few short years, after receiving her coveted Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) "National Youth of the Year Award," she was awarded over $100,000 in scholarships and honored by The President of the United States in the Oval Office. At 18, Mona was also named one of the "Most Influential Black Women," alongside Oprah and Michelle Obama, by Essence Magazine.
Mona was later appointed by President Obama to serve as the youngest member of a U.S. Presidential Community Service Committee. Mona, at 27, is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in Organizational Leadership and empowering others while speaking for corporate companies, schools, youth organizations, fundraisers, graduations, parent organizations, and homeless shelters.
"Mona's story inspired me to be better at what I do. It inspired me to be a better father, a better friend, and a better person. And one thing that she doesn't know is, when I write my story, besides my two kids, she in one of the best people that I know and that I love."- LeBron James, 3x NBA Champion"
