“It’s time we used brains instead of bullets. Think it out! Don’t shoot it out!” Hudson strongly urges youth to stay in school, become active community leaders and promotes skill-sets for champions through his award winning programs at Be Someone. Recognized as one of the nation’s leading youth motivators, Hudson states emphatically, “I speak from experience. I was an at-risk young man with no future. A teacher and the game of chess turned me around. Through Be Someone, Inc., I’m paying back.”
To CHECK, CHANGE and CHALLENGE COMMUNITY LEADERS To GET IN THE GAME and inspire our youth to Be Someone today because tomorrow is not promised to anyone!
