Adalberto Sánchez has made Joseph the keynote speaker because he understands that our youth deserve a holistic approach to learning and development, one that helps prepare them to succeed in college, in their career, and in life. Because of that, Mr. Sánchez made it his responsibility to bring in Joseph and provide this lecture for the Tijuana youth free of charge. As their main goal is to help these young men understand, who they are today, who they want to be, and to help them acquire new knowledge, skills, mindsets, and values.
