Knowing his level of success and popularity as a recording artist here in Canada, I had full confidence that Shaun would be a great musical entertainer and motivational speaker for my students. What impressed me even more was the substance and power of his words when the music was not playing. His presentation was truly one of a kind and something my students still talk about to this day. His talents, story and passion make him a true inspiration.

Shaun’s ideas about identity and multiculturalism certainly made impressions on my students, and many actually went as far as to cite him in their final exam essays. I have tried time and again to get my students to consider the value of historical knowledge and interest beyond simply writing historical essays. Shaun presented this idea better than I ever could have.
