Otis Winston was at West Middle School this morning as part of their Motivational Monday. Winston was speaking to the seventh graders about life decisions and told them it's not how you start the race, it's how you finish. He wants kids to learn to believe in themselves and that they are capable of doing whatever they want to do.

"My thing is to motivate these kids and let them realize they can be whatever it is that you want to be. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't do something. We have too many kids you know being bullied and taking their own lives and all I'm trying to do is get them to realize is find strength within, love what you see when you're looking in a mirror, and your life can be whatever you want it to be," says Winston.
