South Cobb High student, Kadajah Warthen, said, “I want to take what he’s saying, so I won’t make the same mistakes.”
In a very calm, yet serious tone, Vick said, “If I could do my life over, if I could turn back the hands of time and do things differently, I probably would change a lot of things that has happened in my life.”
While the former National Football League Pro Bowl quarterback has made mistakes in his famed career, Vick said it was mostly due to a lack of self-belief.
He left with a message to everyone who has ever experienced a feeling of self-doubt: “Always believe in yourself. When you stop believing in yourself is when you’ll fall.”
