Turner, JD, MALS and TED speaker will motivate your students to start planning their lives so that they can make all their hopes and dreams come true.

For example, if your students are middle school students who send topics and questions focusing on what they are doing in regards to academics and extracurricular activities now, that will be the direction of your interaction; if your students are high school students unsure about what they want to do with their lives whether the immediate future includes college or a career, then that will be the direction of your interaction. Your topic preferences and advance questions are due to us no less than five working days before your scheduled interaction.
