Dr. Deonte Moss
Born in Toledo, Ohio, Deonte Moss experienced childhood trauma that had the potential to negatively impact his life path. Through the challenges he faced, he developed the skills and resilience to overcome numerous obstacles. As an advocate and community leader, Deonte believes in using his life experiences to encourage, motivate, and inspire others.
"Deonte Moss is the definition of good and true character, matched with a dose of integrity that truly is unmeasurable in today's society. In February 2022, I reached out to this gentleman to be a speaker at my entrepreneur empowerment event. Eight months later I am still in awe of the man that I have grown to know and love and am honored to call friend. Deonte's story is the story of the 1%. The story of the kid, who against all odds, and by a tight grip of his own bootstraps, pulled himself up out of his circumstances, out of poverty, over all obstacles and adversity placed before him. Not simply to be average, but to become a phenomenal man. Mr. Moss represents, for so many, hope, ambition, perseverance, and hard work - a modern day superhero."

"Dr. Moss facilitated a character development group for youth boys from the juvenile justice system at Peace of Mind Group Home in Racine, Wisconsin. Each boy received a copy of Dr. Moss's book prior to meeting him. The boys read the book in one day and commented on how his book aligned with their lives. These boys have a hard time picking up any book, but when they picked up Dr. Moss's book; they could not put it down. After meeting Dr. Moss, the boys were taking away meeting an African American man who was an author and someone who had similar experiences as them and was able to overcome. To this day, the boys reflect back on their conversation with Dr. Moss. The impact he made on them will always be remembered. Dr. Moss changed their mindset to reach higher!"
