Anti-BullyingIn-SchoolDr. Paul Stuart WichanskyFilling the Holes of Self-EsteemDr. Paul Wichansky is an award-winning motivational speaker who has shared his story with 1M+ youth, parents, and educators nationwide. His programs inspire confidence, growth, and opportunity as he recalls heartfelt stories that have allowed him to triumph over cerebral palsy, learning to walk and achieving many other goals. He also shares deeply personal stories about his school bullying experiences and how he resolved them through love, respect, and forgiveness.

In an unforgettable demonstration on diversity, Dr. Paul holds up a bright yellow towel. Examining this towel under a magnifying glass allows students to understand the thousands of intersecting threads that together give this towel its strength, color, and quality.

What if this same towel was multicolored? Thousands of threads with bright colors intersect with those that have a more neutral color, but every thread is vitally important to the towel itself.

Isn’t life the same way? If you consider each thread as a person, you realize that we cross paths with thousands, perhaps millions, of different people on our journey through the years, on this “tapestry” of life. One of two things happen when our paths cross with another. If one acts out in anger, rage, or hostility, both threads become frayed, distorted, and discolored; soon a hole begins to form in this life tapestry. If, however, crossing paths with someone who inspires, uplifts, and motivates allows your threads to expand, get thicker, and become vibrant as self-esteem increases. Between intersections, your thread gets narrower and tighter. You find yourself becoming a part of a living, breathing tapestry of life. As you learn about the challenges faced by others, this reduces fear in the community where you are no longer uncomfortable around those who embrace different cultures, heritages, and those who encounter physical, mental, or emotional challenges everyday. These analogies are among those described in Dr. Paul's upcoming book!

Anti-BullyingIn-SchoolPaul Wichansky LLCAccess to Success: A Dream, Motivation, and a Winning Attitude!Never let your attitude become a disability.

As a former special needs child, I share anecdotes that have enabled me to conquer my disabilities and realize my dream of walking. Though in a wheelchair for four years, and can now walk pretty well, the journey has not been easy. I recall experiences being bullied in school (and resolving the bullying with love, respect, and forgiveness) and achieving milestones once believed impossible. Students are taken on an emotional roller-coaster as I share personal stories that reflect the frustration, perseverance, humor, joy, and happiness that comes with realizing goals. This demonstrates to students, by examples, how they can also rise above adversity and personify the triumph of the human spirit.

A leading motivational speaker for 42 years, since age 10, my anti-bullying programs inspire confidence, personal growth, and opportunity. I receive emails from former students years later, thanking me for saving their life. Nothing is ever more important than that.

The objectives are to help students develop a positive mindset, build their confidence, and celebrate their uniqueness, sharing stories that highlight aspects of my life that have helped me achieve, including self-love, positive attitude, support group, perseverance, resilience, and empathy.

Anti-BullyingIn-SchoolRyan's Story Presentation LLCRyan's StoryGet ready to witness a life-changing assembly program that will leave a profound impact on students of grades 5 and higher.. No other program can match the story of how one young life has the power to inspire positive change in the fight against bullying, cyberbullying, and teen suicides.

This powerful true story will encourage students to turn their gaze inward, helping them examine how they treat others. Bystanders will be inspired to step up and stand with the victims, putting a stop to bullying in all its forms. At the same time, a message of forgiveness and love will be imparted to all present.

As the creator of this transformative program, I firmly believe that depression was the root cause of my son's tragic passing. While bullying cannot be excused, we must also take note of the mental health issues that are often swept under the rug. I teach students how pivotal it is to seek help without delay if they or a friend are in crisis, reinforcing the importance of suicide prevention.

This sensitive and age-appropriate program is tailored for students from grades 5-12 and lasts for a captivating 60 minutes. The story takes 45 minutes to narrate, following which the students will be engaged with powerful lessons learned from the story. These lessons include how forgiveness is healing and that self-advocacy paired with advocacy for others can prevent suicide. Students will leave the program inspired to become up-standers and to apologize when owed. Finally, they will know for certain that they are loved beyond belief.

Book me for this life-transforming assembly and witness how one story can bring about a positive change in the world.

Black HistoryIn-SchoolDavid MillsAfrican-American Poetry from the 17th century to todayFrom the enslaved, 18th-century poet Phillis Wheatly (the first African-American to publish a book) to spoken word; from sonnets to rappers; from the 1920s Harlem Renaissance to the 1960s Black Arts Movement, African-American poetry has had a long, dynamic history. In this high-school assembly, Mr. Mills would discuss that dynamism and history. Mr. Mills’ talk highlights the fact that Jupiter Hammon, the first published Negro poet, was enslaved on Long Island and how golden-age-era, alternative rap group Dela Soul also hail from Long Island. Mr. Mills would explain why Harlem Renaissance writers were the first African-American literary movement read by mainstream America. Additionally, Mr. Mills would point out African-American poets’ sometimes recurring themes and styles. We will also look at the occasional differences in subject matter and acclaim of African-American male poets (such as Langston Hughes) as opposed to African-American-women poets, (such as Anne Spencer).
During the Civil Rights era and onward, more African-American women poets, such as Maya Angelou, Sonia Sanchez and Rita Dove received recognition. From the 1990s to the present, two other poetry movements, (the African-American-influenced spoken word, and the literary Cave Canem), have had a significant impact on contemporary, African-American poetry. Mr. Mills would discuss how Cave Canem has produced Pulitzer Prize and Macarthur-Genius award winners, (such as Natasha Tretheway and Terrance Hayes); and how African-American Spoken-Word artists, (such as Dana Bryant and Long Islander Kayo), made performance poetry as relevant as published poetry and have recorded albums and acted on Broadway and TV. Mr. Mills would discuss the differences and similarities between these two contemporary movements, while playing audio and video clips, so students and teachers could hear and see various African-American poets. Lastly, Mr. Mills would pinpoint the relationship between rap and poetry. This talk is presented by award-winning writer and lecturer David Mills, who lived as writer-in-residence in Langston Hughes’ landmark home and who combines facts with fun ways of thinking about poetry. Topics such as African-American poetry and history, creativity and gender equity are touched upon.

Black HistoryIn-SchoolDavid MillsThe DreamweaverThis talk would be about the life and work of Harlem Renaissance writer Langston Hughes—affectionately known as “Shakespeare in Harlem." Mr. Mills would take the audience on an odyssey spanning six decades from Hughes’ humble Joplin, Missouri beginnings to the realization of his dream of living in Harlem for all of his adult life. Mr. Mills would discuss Hughes' participation in the 1920s and 30s Harlem Renaissance artistic movement and his world travels as a writer to places such as Russia, Africa, Italy, France, Japan, Mexico, South America and the Caribbean. Mr. Mills would also discuss Hughes' iconic poems (such as “I’ve Known Rivers,” “Mother to Son,” “I, Too,” “Montage of a Dream Deferred” and “Madam Alberta K”) his Jesse B. Semple short stories and Hughes' nearly 50 plays.
The discussion highlights Hughes’ unending love for Harlem—with its foibles and fantasies and beauty and brutality. The talk also explores the fact that Hughes created the blues poetic form. Students would also have an opportunity to read aloud some of Hughes' memorable poems.

Black HistoryIn-SchoolDavid MillsWriters of the Harlem RenaissanceThe Harlem Renaissance was a rebirth of African-American music, dance, art, literature and theater in 1920s Harlem. David Mills (who lived as a writer-in-residence in Harlem Renaissance writer Langston Hughes’ landmark home) would conduct a high-school assembly about the writers of the Harlem Renaissance. The Renaissance produced poets who wrote formal poems, (such as Countee Cullen and Anne Spencer); and authors, (such as fiction writer Zora Neale Hurston and poet Langston Hughes), who incorporated African-American culture into their work by using black music and northern and southern working-class African-Americans as their subject matter. Hurston’s writing reflected black life in the rural south. Hughes wrote the first blues poem and jazz music influenced his poem’s topics and rhythms. Harlem Renaissance writers often wrote about Negro music, slavery’s aftermath, and financial difficulties. Mr. Mills would discuss how these writers believed their writing would “uplift” the Negro race, change and integrate society, and challenge stereotypes. Mr. Mills would point out how and why Harlem Renaissance literature (poetry, novels, autobiographies, and journalism) flourished during the Roaring 20s, from 1924 until the 1929 stock-market crash.
Mr. Mills would also discuss how Harlem Renaissance writers would not have succeeded without the financial support and encouragement of white patrons, such as socialite Charlotte Mason and journalist Carl Van Vechten. Mr. Mills would discuss how the Renaissance led to the first time mainstream publishers published the works of a number of African-American writers, such as Jean Toomer, Jessie Fauset, Claude McKay, and James Weldon Johnson. Mr. Mills would also discuss why, (although there were several women Renaissance writers, such as Nella Larsen, Jessie Fauset, and Alice Nelson), these talented women were not as celebrated as the male writers. Throughout his dynamic presentation, Mr. Mills would use audio and visuals to give students a greater sense of 1920s Harlem and the African-American writers who flourished there. Mr. Mills would combine facts with intriguing ways of thinking about these individuals. The talk will get students to consider where African-American culture and creativity meet. Topics such as African-American poetry, 20th-century history, gender equality and New York City in the 1920s are touched upon.

This discussion would start with Dr, King’s beginnings in Atlanta, Georgia as a preacher’s son and his formal education. The discussion would then focus on Dr. King’s early involvement in the Civil Rights Movement, from his being appointed pastor of Montgomery Alabama’s Dexter Avenue Baptist Church—a position which would lead to him being a central figure in the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott. We would discuss how he used nonviolent resistance as the guiding philosophy of the Civil Rights Movement to end segregation in the South and how he learned this philosophy from the Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. Dr. King/ the Civil Rights Movement, then, effectively used nonviolent strategies such as boycotts, marches, Sit-ins and Freedom Rides to achieve their goal of ending segregation. We would look at other movements Dr. King figured in, such as the movements in Albany, Georgia and Birmingham Alabama, where, from jail, he wrote his renowned “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” We would discuss the impact of his “I Have a Dream” speech, which he delivered during the 1963 March on Washington. Throughout the talk, I would share iconic photos and recorded excerpts of Dr. King’s speeches and sermons. We would also discuss how Dr. King’s/the Civil Rights Movements efforts led to the U.S. government passing the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965, respectively. I would also incorporate lesser-known but pivotal figures in Dr. King’s quest for Civil Rights, such as his wife Coretta Scott King, Ella Baker, and Bayard Rustin.https://davidmills.squarespace.combooked65@yahoo.com347-844-6688

Black HistoryIn-SchoolDavid Mills`Boneyarn: Slavery in New York and Long IslandNew York City has the oldest and largest slave cemetery in the United States. And best-selling writer David Mills would conduct a high-school assembly about the little-known history of slavery in New York City, which he wrote about in his award-winning-book Boneyarn. New York’s slave cemetery has 15,000 bodies buried within a seven-acre plot in lower Manhattan’s City Hall area. Mr. Mills would discuss the type of work New York’s enslaved did, such as toiling as cooks, sailors, lumberjacks, carpenters, bricklayers, blacksmiths, butchers, and barbers. (Children, as young as four years old, worked jobs such as, as chimney sweeps.) Mr. Mills would discuss what the enslaved ate, their living conditions, and religious practices. (Many of the enslaved became Christians but some continued practicing African religious customs.) Founding Fathers Alexander Hamilton and John Jay started the New York Manumission Society, an organization which existed to gradually free New York City’s slaves. Mr. Mills would point out the Society’s impact on the lives of the enslaved. Wall Street gets its name from an actual wall slaves built across Lower Manhattan. Mr. Mills would discuss the reason for that wall and how that “wall” became a street that is now known as the financial capital of the world. Free Negroes also lived in colonial New York. Mr. Mills would discuss the similarities and differences between the lives of New York’s free and enslaved Negroes. (He would also highlight significant differences between the lives of the enslaved in the North verses enslaved Negroes in the South.) He would encourage students to think about why, (when most Americans think about slavery), they believe it only happened in the American South. Throughout the presentation, Mr. Mills would use projected visuals to give students a greater sense of colonial New York. Mr. Mills’ dynamic presentation combines facts with eye-opening ways of thinking about slavery in the North. Topics such as African-American history, slavery and colonial New York are highlighted. https://davidmills.squarespace.com/booked65@yahoo.com347-844-6688

Black HistoryVirtualRaynham Hall Museum“Standing Where They Stood: Learning About Slavery in Oyster Bay” Virtual TourRaynham Hall Museum in Oyster Bay is famous as the home of Robert Townsend - Washington's spy - but this “Virtual Tour” brings to light a new - and much misunderstood history, focused not on the family, but on the 19 African-Americans who were enslaved by the Townsends, and the extent of slavery throughout New York and Long Island in the days before and after the Revolution. It is a history so critical to understand, and yet slavery in New York remains virtually unknown to the vast majority of New Yorkers.
This one hour program reveals true stories of scores of individuals who lived in slavery on Long Island, including the first slave freed on Long Island in 1685, the first published black author in America, born in 1711, an enslaved woman who escaped with the British in 1779, and a regiment of African-Americans who fought alongside British Col. Simcoe's Queen's Rangers in 1780. Participants are invited to connect with a particular enslaved individual, examine historical documents, read runaway slave ads and notices of slaves for sale, and learn about how laws in New York to end slavery impacted the lives of these forgotten Long Islanders.

Character EducationIn-School, VirtualDr. Paul Stuart WichanskyGood Character Makes Us a SuperheroNever allow your attitude become a disability.

Cerebral palsy and a hearing loss have never stopped Dr. Paul from realizing his goals and dreams! His programs inspire confidence, growth, and opportunity as he shares with students the positive perspectives and realities of growing up with these challenges and leading an uplifting, productive life. Whether we have cerebral palsy, ADHD, or autism, we need to understand that these are not disabilities as much as they are gifts. His topics cover diversity, disability acceptance, anti-bullying, character education, youth empowerment, and peer leadership.

Dr. Paul Stuart Wichansky is an award-winning motivational speaker who has shared his story with 1M+ youth, parents, and educators nationwide and with foreign-exchange students from 20 countries. In September 2020, NJ Senator Vin Gopal awarded Dr. Paul an honorary proclamation for his 40-year speaking career and, in 2019, attended one of his motivational programs to an auditorium of NJ high school seniors. Dr. Paul shares the Senator's official press release at his web site ( www.JustTheWayYouAre.com ).

His presentation focuses on optimism and resilience, especially in this age of covid. When we understand the adversity that others face in their lives, this helps us become more comfortable around those who are different, replacing fear with love and respect while also instilling self-confidence. Each program includes a narrated 15-min documentary video and interactive Q&A.

With his in-person or virtual program, Dr. Paul's uplifting, heartfelt stories inspire students, building their confidence to believe in themselves and the beauty of their dreams. Students learn how to face adversity with perseverance, optimism, and a "Yes I Can!" attitude.

Character EducationIn-School, VirtualPaul Wichansky LLCMake a Positive Difference and Become a Superhero!A motivational speaker with 42 years of experience, since age 10, I host programs that help transform anxiety and ignorance into kindness, respect, and admiration for those who strive to rise above adversity. Students learn the wisdom to recognize our strength in diversity, the confidence to minimize bullying, and the motivation to realize dreams.

As a former special needs child, I share captivating anecdotes that have enabled me to triumph over cerebral palsy and hearing loss. These stories elicit a cascade of emotions in my audiences that help them find the courage and confidence to navigate life's challenges, igniting a spark of hope and optimism that leads to happiness and success.

These programs teach youth to release fear or self-doubt when faced with bullying, injury, disability, or other adversity, by helping them harness the power of self-love, confidence, and forgiveness. Tights and a cape don't make us a Hero. It's changing the world, one person at a time, that does. My program is filled with personal stories that encourage students to share their talents, build their confidence, and celebrate their heroic qualities of character.

Character EducationVirtualRyan's Story Presentation LLCRyan's Story Virtual OptionMy son’s life story affects students like no other program. This true story inspires them to make positive changes in their lives to reduce bullying, cyberbullying, and prevent teen suicides. Students are reached profoundly to examine themselves and how they treat others. Bystanders are inspired to no longer stand by and let others get bullied at school or online. An inspiring lesson about forgiveness is also imparted. All will leave this presentation feeling loved, hopeful, and changed.

This video program does not get into the specifics of the suicide nor does it express an overly simplistic connection between bullying and suicide. I always make the point that I believe that in the end, my son died of an illness called depression that tragically went undetected and untreated. Bullying was probably a contributing factor, but there was an underlying mental health issue, too. I emphasize to students that if you ever feel suicidal or have a friend you believe to be suicidal, immediately seek help from an adult. I have received numerous compliments from school psychologists about how well I address both bullying and depression and the delicate intersection of both issues.

The video student presentation is age-appropriate for grades 5-12 and is 60 minutes.
