Frederick Shegog, Founder/CEO of The Message LLC (www.themessagellc.com), is inspiring, educating, and creating healthy lifestyles for all as a motivational speaker. Dumpster diving, panhandling, and drinking were once everyday activities. Despite a decade of alcohol abuse and time spent homeless, I was able to transform myself into a graduate with high honor’s. As a motivational speaker, I am on a mission to help others combat substance use disorder and mental health. Experienced in creating and facilitating workshops to address the community’s needs in the areas of collegiate recovery, substance use disorders, and mental health, I am changing the way colleges serve/educate students in recovery and dealing with mental illness. I was recently selected as the opening keynote for the Missouri Mental Health Impact Summit. I was blessed to be voted as a Philadelphia Region’s Black Men Icon of 2020. I was selected to the All State Pa Academic Team, where I received a full paid tuition scholarship to West Chester University. I am enrolled in the honor’s college studying communications. I was recently featured on Fox 29 segment For Goodness Sakes show with Bill Anderson (https://youtu.be/HPoc9h_kkng) Visit my website www.themessagellc.com and let’s connect!
