Live Your Legacy School Assemblies:
The Biography Series is a celebration of greatness. As a youth speaker Shaun Boothe has created this series not just as a way to entertain and inform but as a way to awaken the greatness within us all.
“His performance was very informative and refreshing. Shaun made sure to have everyone’s attention and hold it throughout the entire performance.”
Carrigan Desjardins (Vice President Student Life Saint Mary’s University Students’ Association)
“I would highly recommend Shaun as a guest speaker to challenge and empower our youth to be responsible and caring individuals”
Joan Tschernow (Cardinal Newman Catholic High School, Principal)
“Shaun brings a refreshing new light to older topics that the students really appreciate and more importantly can relate to. I personally recommend the Biography Series as it is a unique, refreshing and important approach to teaching students about influential and historically significant figures in our modern day lives.”
Eric Johnson (Peel Alternative School South, Teacher)
“The imagery and descriptions illustrated by Mr. Boothe’s lyrical ability not only captures the attention of the audience, but it stirs the creativity in the minds of young children.”
Sultan Rana (Donald Cousens Public School, teacher)
“Shaun’s ideas about identity and multiculturalism certainly made impressions on my students, and many actually went as far as to cite him in their final exam essays. I have tried time and again to get my students to consider the value of historical knowledge and interest beyond simply writing historical essays. Shaun’s videos presented this idea better than I ever could have.”
Jason Hawkins (Crestwood Preparatory College, History Teacher)
"Upper Canada College welcomed, for the first time in its 184 year history, a rapper onto its school grounds. Shaun Boothe was one of the [World Affairs] Conferene highlights, and because of the success of his performance the Executive Committee plans on bringing in a musical act to close next year as well.
Eric Tweel (UCC's online Arts Publication, 2013)
“To me, this seems to follow in Shaun’s messages of empowerment and also arming our vulnerable young communities with the knowledge of the great leaders who have come before them and the struggles they have gone through which of course is necessary in order to have a clear understanding of where you are headed. What is so critical about the work that Shaun is doing is that the information he is sharing is couched in a relevant form of media that young people are not only open to, but searching for.”
