Meet Derrick Freeland

Motivation Speaker, Entrepreneur & Life Coach

Hey! I am a 24-year-old motivational speaker, who serves the community by inspiring our youth. As a motivational speaker, I use the stage name I AM FREE. I became a motivational speaker to empower others through my personal story. Life has presented me with a great deal of struggles, but through those experiences, I have grown resilient and learned to excel through the adversity.

 

My background as a former student-athlete, The Citadel Military College alum, entrepreneur, and my age makes me relatable to a wide range of students. As a motivational speaker, it is my goal to connect with everyone in the room and promote that same focus on Social-Emotional learning and personal development that has allowed me to persevere time and time again. One area of development that I feel is necessary for our youth to focus on is the importance of mental health and breaking down the stigma around mental health.

"Success comes from a series of good decisions. Good decisions come from experiences. Experience comes from learning from bad decisions."
