The UVa-Wise chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success will offer a speaker broadcast event featuring Trevor Nash. The event, entitled A Conversation with Trevor Noah, will be on Tuesday, March 28 at 8:30 pm in the Cantrell Banquet Hall and is free to all students, staff and faculty, and the public. The event will be streamed live and hosted by New Jersey City University in Jersey City, N.J. All viewers are invited to submit questions via Twitter and Facebook, which will be answered live during the broadcast.
Trevor Noah is the current host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Noah’s first book, Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, became an instant New York Times bestseller. The book is a collection of personal stories about growing up in South Africa during apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise. Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers an intimate look at the world that shaped him. Noah will be sharing lessons learned from his personal experiences and offering advice to students for identifying and following their passions.
