"Decide your own Destiny"

Audience: Teens and Young Adults
Length: 45 - 50 minutes

Imagine an audience of hundreds of teenagers, in fits of laughter, being drawn in, opening their hearts and minds. Then the raw truth of life comes into full view. The story of a boy born with a disability, the first known case in Australia, facing the future of being different, but desperately wanting just to fit in. Facing teasing, bullying and being labelled. Going through the grief of losing his mum at a young age, but rising above the 'stuff' to choose his own adventure, to create his own future - to decide his own destiny.

Nathan understands what it feels like to try to form and discover your own identity and purpose. He has learned that life’s battles can be won, armed with a sense of humor and an optimistic attitude. Sharing his struggles, Nathan encourages young people to view their lives through a new lens. This empowering story of triumph encourages teens to understand that our destiny is not determined by the 'stuff' that happens to us, the 'stuff' which is out of our control. But our destiny is determined by the decisions we make in response to those things.

Topics Covered in DECIDE YOUR OWN DESTINY Include:

* Stuff happens
* Response-ability = your ability to respond
* Dont B-Lame
* Adversity creates opportunity
* Be the best YOU - everybody else is taken
* I believe in YOU - do YOU believe in YOU?
* Decisions are made daily
