RayQuan is on a mission to inspire kids to be the best version of themselves. Impacting youth is very important to him. He is able to share his stories as a basketball player, a student who struggled with school, his adversities in life and how he was able to overcome them. Being a part of basketball camps, schools assemblies and small groups have helped him spread his message and connect with students from different backgrounds. Speaking is preparing RayQuan to not just motivate, but to help change generations. He is shining light in places where it is not seen. The communities that he has had the opportunity to reach have been loving and welcoming. Giving the youth hope, strength and power to change not only their lives, but their families’ lives as well has driven him to do what he does now.
