Harry C. Crawford Jr., is a writer, a motivational speaker and expert from Cleveland, Ohio. Harry is family oriented and has always had a passion to help any and everybody in need. “ As a child, I always knew I was different. I never fit in.” Harry is a God fearing man and walk strongly and bold in his faith. Overcoming the barriers of suicide in his late teens/early 20’s, Harry knew he had a calling and a gift that need to be shared through the world.” It wasn’t until I went away to college and upon my return home, where I realized something was different.” Harry just recently obtained his Associate’s Degree in Business Management from Indiana Wesleyan University. As he continue to pursue his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, Harry has a vision that will help shaped today’s society. He stands strongly on his motto, “Be who you are, Own who you are, Love who you are”!
When one adheres to the call of saving lives,it initially begins within. Harry made the decision many years ago to address the issues of abuse and neglect that he suffered by the hands of those he trusted. “I’ve had a passion to help people, but i realized I could help millions through my life’s experiences by my God given platform: my voice”- states the burgeoning leader.
“ To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true”-Bayard Rustin. Harry’s self discovery to his dreams includes his recent degree in Business Management and his current educational trajectory of pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Cleveland State University with the culminating goal of Child Psychologist. “My educational journey includes opening my own practice while saving one life at a time. I want my work to be a creative part of the landscape that develops literature to help free minds and mend broken hearts”, states Crawford. This intrepid vision gave birth to his global movement : I AM ME.
I Am Me is an International Movement that will draw people from all walks of life. NO matter the race, sexual orientation, religion or sex. EVERYONE is SOMEBODY in I Am Me! As we continue to move forward as a nation, I Am Me vows to help individuals discover the true meaning of Identity. As we tackle this everyday thing called life, I Am Me is an organized movement that is comfortable in being who we are in our own skin, race, religion, sex and sexual orientation.
Crawford’s lineage includes pastors and preachers, but he knew from the onset, that wasn’t his calling. He began to study some of the most profound and prolific keynote leaders of our times. He was particularly endeared to Dr. Martin Luther King and he greatly admired Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bayard Rustin and Iyanla Vanzant. “Once you discover who you are and own it, you’re no longer afraid for the truth to live”, states Mr.Crawford. The ability to fully embrace your God divine power is critically paramount to Harry and whomever he helps.
“We have the power to awaken what truly lives within us, WE HAVE THE POWER, NO ONE ELSE!”-Harry Crawford, Jr.”
