Tonight's special guest is Charles (Chuck) Prinzen from Fairfield, California, a returning NAASCA Ambassador to California. A survivor and activist, Chuck (aka Coach Chuck) is an educator and the Founder of 'Me Inc Now' Consulting (Me Expressing I Need Change NOW Consulting). This program focuses on bringing awareness and working with young adults to change negative cycles passed down from generations before. Chuck says he survived 'cycles of life' and his story of abuse is one of torment, pain, feelings of loneliness and despair. " They say that hindsight is twenty-twenty; mine was not, it was blurry." He goes on, "The first step to seeing the past clearly was when a kindhearted gift of love was given to me by a stranger." Chuck's principal goal is to help instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today’s youth, toward achieving a brighter future by incorporating cultural change through lessons of the past, to bridge the ever-growing generation gap. Change is built upon a foundation of communication, listening, and love. Chuck is committed to inspiring positive thoughts and breaking cycles of anger and resentment that prevent young individuals from being the best version of themselves. "I am thankful for learning that 'love' is most the powerful tool in my emotional toolbox," Chuck writes, "no more sorrow and loneliness, no more bruises, no more pain, no more fear." Chuck was the keynote speaker for Los Angeles and Vacaville Unified School Districts, an emcee at the Power of We Symposium in Atlanta, and most recently a top 25 finalist in the inaugural season of the Next Impactor.
