Master Class: Perseverance and Service Leadership

Come talk to Saul about how he overcame his own barriers to live up to his fullest potential. Learn how to empathize with individuals from underserved communities, how adversity can fuel personal growth, and how first-generation students can change the world. Saul will also touch upon how finding purpose beyond just yourselves allows you to accomplish much more, how serving others is leadership, the value of service-learning trips and giving back to communities, and how to use your skills and talents in service of others.

Keynote: The Walk with Immigrants

12:00pm – 1:30pm

240 Dockser | Northeastern University School of Law

Saul spent three months walking, hitchhiking, and sleeping on the ground and in hiding places. His journey began in Ecuador and ended in Charlotte, North Carolina. In three months, he walked 5,328 miles through ten countries and nine border crossings to document how grueling and dangerous the journey of immigrants to the United States can be and to raise money for an elementary school in Atencingo, Mexico. In this keynote, Saul speaks about how as a North Carolina State University senior, he took the “Walk” in the summer of 2010. Student audiences get the opportunity to relive The Walk of the Immigrants along with Saul and create a deeper understanding of the struggles, hardships, joy, and hope that immigrants experience on their journey.
