Devante Robinson Brings Passion for Service & Engagement to TEDxYouth@TampaBay 2011!

Devante Robinson is 18, is a recent graduate of Hillsborough High School, where he was Student Government vice president, a member of the National Honor Society, Key Club and Jr. ROTC for 4 years, and graduated with a 4.75 GPA.  Cadet Major Robinson, a Battalion Executive Officer, is  now a Freshman at Hillsborough Community College where he is double majoring in medicine and psychology.   He is the first of his 11 siblings to attend college and is studying to be a doctor.

Devante has been a Big Brother Big Sister “Big” for the last year, and caught TEDxYouth@TampaBay’s attention when he conducted a fundraiser for BBBS and almost single-handedly raised over $800 for the organization.  Devante accumulated 226 hours of community service while in high school and comes to TEDxYouth@TampaBay 2011 to share his passion for giving back, for being an active and involved citizen and for refusing to achieve anything less than his full potential.
