Come join the Wildcat Events Board for an evening with RJ Mitte, most prominently known for his portrayal of Walt Jr. on AMC's hit show, Breaking Bad. RJ's presentation, entitled "Overcoming Adversity: Turning a Disadvantage into a Advantage," is sure to appeal to both long-time fans of the show as well as anyone interested in overcoming adversity. This event is completely free, though seating is limited so plan accordingly.
RJ Mitte has worked his entire life to not only overcome but triumph over his disability. Born with mild cerebral palsy, the health struggles Mitte experienced early in life were compounded when he became a victim of school bullying. Upon hearing that bullying was at the root of several teen suicides in 2010, Mitte began speaking out on the topic via YouTube and in the media. He is now a role model for anyone who has faced difficulty and gone on to accomplish greatness in their lives. From bullying victim to Hollywood actor in a hit show, Mitt has turned his disability into an asset, and delivers an inspirational message to campus audiences to never let anything hold you back -- you can make of your life whatever you want.
