Dr. Connor discusses the stigma placed on those who "learn differently" and what it means to truly grow into your mind.

As a speaker, author, and educator, I prepare youth to be leaders and adults to be mentors and role models. I have been inspiring and motivating young people (and training their adult leaders and teachers) for more than 30 years. I show youth and adults how to get in touch with their passion, define their purpose, and create attainable goals. I am the author of an award-winning goal-setting book, Dreams to Action Trailblazer's Guide.
