BENEFITING: BE SOMEONE
Heads up, pants up, grades up and never give up!
That's the mantra of award winning motivational speaker Orrin Checkmate Hudson, whose mission in life is to help kids who want and need a way to move forward in life. As he talks about in a recent CNN video, Orrin uses the game of chess to teach the lessons of life, particularly the focus, discipline and patience required by the game - all of which can be translated to the game of life.
As a former law enforcement officer, Orrin believes that prevention is better than detention, and the currency on the planet is KASH: K for Knowledge, A for Attitude, S for Skills and H for Habits. Once a kid has KASH, no one can take it away. Since 2,000 he's helped over 35,000 kids develop the practical skills and techniques to overcome obstacles in life, illustrated through the best and most intellectual visual aid, the chessboard.
