Travis Angry: Youth Inspirational Speaker
There is an epidemic facing our society. Our youth are struggling like never before.

Travis has a message for our young people, one that is powerful because he has walked in their shoes. Travis made a number of wrong choices, dropped out of high school and associated with the wrong crowd before finally finding his way to discipline and success in the US Navy.
After proudly serving his country, he returned to fight an even bigger enemy when he was diagnosed with cancer. He went on to graduate with his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Phoenix, a second enlistment in the Army, and is raising two beautiful children – and even faced another fight against cancer. This is a man who knows you must find the strength within. Travis published his book, Change: If I can, You Can®, in January of 2014 and is a sought after youth motivational speaker.
