Documentary, The Courage To Believe: Never Give Up

The Courage To Believe Documentary is a dream come true. It has been my passion for the past year to travel across the globe with a video camera while inspiring our teenagers and young adults to believe in their God-given talents. I’ve conducted workshops and gave inspirational speeches for the past 2 years in Florida with many churches, schools of all levels, and organizations such as the Urban League and the Department of Juvenile Justice. Now, its time to inspire and encourage our nation with a one of a kind film! Join us and support this groundbreaking project, click here.

Sun Sentinel: “After 20 Years, Teacher Gets A Thank You To Remember”

By Karen Yi, Sun Sentinel 6:36 p.m. EST, January 4, 2013 Kevin Dorival, 32, sat before his fifth grade teacher on Friday and handed her one final writing assignment – his first published book – and the biggest thank you a teacher could ask for. It was the first time in more than 20 years that Sonji Wyche saw her student since he graduated from Park Ridge Elementary School in Deerfield Beach in 1992. But he said her lessons still inspire him, and he thanks her for that in his autobiography, “The Courage to Believe.” “I’m elated that he thought of me. He didn’t have to remember me,” Wyche, 48, said. “I’ve been thanked before but not this big … I’m honored.” Dorival said he found Wyche through Facebook. The pair decided to meet on Friday, before Dorival honors her during his book signing Saturday at 2 p.m. at the African-American Research Library in Fort Lauderdale. Dorival, a mentor and inspirational speaker, “was always an ‘I can’ and ‘I will’ kid, a very hard worker … he hasn’t changed,” said Wyche, who now teaches at Parkway Middle School in Lauderhill. “Still looks the same, the same smile. He’s just taller, but he’s still shy.” Click, here to read more Broward County African American Research Library Date: January 5, 2013 Contact: Kevin Dorival, Author 954-263-8223, email: info@couragetobelievebook.com Welcome desk and general information: 954-357-6210
