The Impact of Cary Trivanovich's High School Keynote

Emails and letters written to Cary Trivanovich


"I can't convey to you how deeply profound and meaningful I found your performance...  you are so inspiring and incredibly moving...  Thank you so much - you don't know what you have done for me."
   Tiffany from Napa, CA

"I had the opportunity to see your show this past Summer at the National Student Council Convention in Arizona and I felt truly compelled to write you and tell you how deeply you touched me...  I have seen many nationally known speakers, and I have to tell you that your show is the very best one... You will never really know how much your show meant to me."
     Makila from Lincoln, NE

"I felt a compulsion to tell you this... over the last year, I haven't been happy with "me". In fact, I've become depressed, self-harmed over school, over doing "worse" than other students... I felt like going and cutting, or I'd become infuriated with those I was close to... Your performance, the "Life" performance, made me cry. It made me realize how important life really is and I've taken it for granted. I have potential to help shape lives, for better or worse. Now I know that in being happy with myself, and doing my best, I can see the beauty in life and help others see it too. Honestly, I'm finally happy with who I am. Thank you."
   Jordan from Eureka, CA


"Sir - Thank you for saving my life.  Last week I decided that I was worth nil.  In a couple days I was going to kill myself.  Today you made me laugh for the 1st time in weeks and I think I'll get help.  You don't realize."
   [A note handed to Cary by a young lady after a high school assembly in Monterey, CA]

"I was going to skip the assembly so I could get high, but I was caught and a teacher took me to the auditorium to watch you... Your message probably saved my life.  I was very deep into drugs, so deep that I didn't think I'd ever make it out of my hole.  I didn't even expect to make it out of high school.  But, after I watched your show, I realized that I was wasting my life and my potential... I want you to know that you changed my life and that you made a difference in one girl's life."
   Jennifer, from an undisclosed area

"You have touched my life and I will carry your message with me for the rest of my life."
   Bethann from NJ

"It totally opened my eyes and made me realize how precious my life as a teen is...  I finally came to the conclusion that I wouldn't do any drugs again.  The "Gift of Life" touched me on a personal level, and made me realize that I want to stay young as long as I can; and, that doing drugs is not a good way to do so.  I just wanted to say thank you for your aide, and that I will NEVER forget today's performance.  Again, you have touched my heart and I want to let you know that you have saved my life, and my adolescence.  You are a true saint and no one will ever be able to replace what you have done for me today."
   Michelle from Woodcreek, CA

"It takes A LOT to keep my attention throughout a whole speech, make me laugh & feel moved... I can't even tell you enough how much you have touched my heart so deeply..."
   Ashley from Fresno, CA

"HEY!  You just performed at my school... and to be honest with you, you had me in tears.  Both from laughing and emotionally.  At the end when you performed the man going through life, made me realize just how important life is.  I tried committing suicide about a month ago.  Believe me, I have my regrets, but I had not gave my life much thought.  Now, thanks to you, I have been humbled.  You are absolutely amazing.  Thank you..."
   Cassie from Riverside County, CA
