About the Author
Nicholas D’Agostino is a spoken-word motivational speaker, author, and coach from Wantage, New Jersey. At 18 months old, he and his identical twin brother Anthony were diagnosed with a genetic disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. At 6 years old, both of them were confined to power wheelchairs and a new set of struggles. Their parents, Albert and Susan, raised and cared for them through their entire lives and ensure that they lead the most normal lives as they possibly can. During his teenage years, Nicholas realized that he would never be average. In his situation, he estimated that he could either be a source of pity or a source of inspiration. Fueled by his faith and his positive attitude, he chose the latter. Since the inception of his decision to be a motivator, he has inspired literally millions of lives with his story and outlook on life. His message has brought him from coast to coast in the United States. He has been featured on and in television, radio, and print around the world. His poetry is something that has helped him through his darkest times and his story is something that has helped countless others through theirs. Combined, his poetry and story have enabled him to form a bond and connection with his audience that very few others have achieved in his profession. His ability to cultivate potential in and empathize with everyone he meets is second to none. He has impacted people of all ages and walks of life, and they have impacted him in return. His mind and heart are on the same page in his ongoing story.
