My name is Virgil Seay. When I was born I was told I was not going to live a long life, but 42 years later I am living a happy and healthy life and overcoming the challenges of Spina Bifida. I want everyone to know that Every day. No Excuses. Have Fun. Anything is possible with a good attitude and faith that you can do anything you put your mind to.
I am available to speak about issues such as, Spina Bifida, Ostomy, being a worker with a disability and on site job issues, and living after a stroke. I can speak at your Support group, Award Ceremony, Corporate Event, Convention, school assembly, festival or any special event.
Virgil came to speak with youth of all abilities about bullying and being someone that lives with a disability. He was wonderful to work with, reliable, punctuation, and communicated excellent. His speech was meaningful and kept the attention of the kids through out the whole experience. He was interactive and opened up for questions at the end which really sparked good conversation. Since his speech, the Non-Profit that Community Inclusion Program is under has asked him to be the key note speaker for a large conference for youth his upcoming March. I really enjoyed working with Virgil and would recommend him to anyone looking for someone with a great message.
