Fresh Voice of Self-Help for teens to speak at University of Florida

Growing up, Josh Shipp was neglected, abused and abandoned. After growing up in a great foster home and learning from inspirational teachers and school programs, Josh developed a strong, positive attitude that is encouraging and relatable to teens. He will deliver his humorous yet profound life messages in the JWRU Rion Ballroom on January 29th. Doors open at 7pm and the show will begin at 8pm.

Josh uses his personal story of triumph over tragedy to inspire youth to overcome life’s struggles and live life to the fullest. After serving as State DECA President and on the School-to-Work student advisory committee, Josh committed his life to helping others achieve their goals. Josh has spoken to audiences of up to 27,000 and shared the stage with comedians such as Bill Cosby. He has also recently hosted a reality show called “Prom Date.” In addition to writing his own book, Josh coauthored three teen leadership books: “The Best of Success for Teens,” “The Making of an Unshakable Character,” and “Forty Voices.” He has also been the focus of various articles, interviews and a subject for other authors.
