    Take a class in communication and public speaking. Then when you think you have the communication skills and the public speaking ability. You can then go to schools and colleges and become a motivated speaker !
    Design a web page and have business cards. be prepared to deal with ignorant, hostile, and bored people. Diversity is another key factor when traveling from city to city. Some kids live in a hard knock life and will try to make you feel insecure. Just be prepared for the smart assses and have a good sense of humor. I pray your dream comes true and you can influence people against drugs !! God Bless You
