About Me: African American Speaker & Author
I have a passion for helping people and I understand as an established Young African American Male,
that I have a responsibility to give back during my free time.
|a total of 18 years. I trained hard and I reached my highest level when I became the MVP on my college baseball team in my
final year. I hoped that I would go "pro" but like so many other athletes I went "pro" in something else. I became a professional
experiences that I learned from youth baseball, basketball, and football. I am a better man because of all of the life lessons that
are intertwined into sports. I am still passionate about exercise and maintaining a balanced exercise routine by lifting weights
4-5 days a week and swimming 2-3 days a week.
|I enjoy creating good social environments. I enjoy cooking on the grill
and in the kitchen when doing it for others. Below are pics of a few
of my many house cookouts and gatherings
|I am just a regular guy trying to live a balanced life and with purpose. I am
always trying to grow spiritually so I am always reading and getting involved
with local ministries and youth motivational speaking opportunities. I feel
empty when I go more than 2 days without reading something for my growth. I
love to exercise, network, hang around nice crowds and good people. I have
worked as a mechanical engineer since 2002. I am passionate about the
success of the African-American Community.

|B. Rice Past Times
|B. Rice as a Child
|I wish I would have started reading on my own as early as Elementary School and definitely by High School. My mother tried to instill the
value of reading in me but I was very stubborn. I was like so many other kids, I did not do what I was suppose to do. Since the age of 25,
which is much later than desired, I make sure I read something of value every day. My grammar skills and speaking skills have improved
tremendously. I feel like I am still behind because of all of the missed opportunities as a youth but I am determined to make myself better.

|I Just Want Everyone To Succeed I sincerely want those around me to strive to be better
and that motivates me to be the best Youth and Adult Speaker possible. Too often many people
become content and complacent with their situation when they are not internally content. As I
reach for my stars, I want others to see me as a positive example so they can reach for their
stars. I have destiny on my mind all of the time and I know there is something extraordinarily
great in store for me as long as I stay focused on His vision and my goals. Just watch and see
the blessings flow. I feel so close. Just tune in as I go on this journey of Motivational Speaking,
Community Building, Inspiration and Giving.
