share my story with audiences of all ages and professions, but I believe it is imperative to reach students at the age in which they typically begin to impose the limitations on themselves that may come to define the quality of life they grow up to lead.  

I speak to students having learned to transcend the physical limitations of cerebral palsy and the mental anguish of self-doubt and shame, with my humor still intact. 

School was agonizingly hard for me even though I was a good student academically and treated well by my teachers and peers.  In spite of all this support, I still became so overwhelmed by my perception of my limitations in junior high that I almost ended my own life.

I take my experience and translate it in an engaging, humorous, and ultimately empowering way.  I share with students that there is always a way to take the next step forward, to learn to love ourselves a little more, and to have compassion for their peers – who are navigating their own unique set of circumstances.  I encourage them to persevere towards what they really want out of life without focusing so much on what they don’t want. These are things I wish I had realized when I was in junior high.

“I have had the honor of witnessing many speakers inspire and rejuvenate an audience but Jason Freeman ranks among the best! He connects with teachers and students alike and brings us to a place of understanding, empathy and empowerment. He’s sincere, engaging and hilarious! If you desire a memorable speech that will leave your audience smiling, I highly recommend Jason Freeman as your next keynote.”
