Around Javelina Nation February 23, 2018-March 2, 2018

Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte delivers powerful presentation, Overcoming Adversity:

Javelina Nation welcomed actor, RJ Mitte, on Wednesday, February 28.

Before giving his presentation, Overcoming Adversity: Turning a Disadvantage to an Advantage, Mitte sat down to answer a few questions from students, signed autographs and took photos.

Mitte's presentation discussed his time on the cult-favorite television show Breaking Bad, his current philanthropic work, and how he refuses to let Cerebral Palsy get in the way of anything he sets his mind to do.

"Everyone needs to have a belief system," he told the audience. "You have to believe in something."

He continued by reassuring others that they were capable of making a difference.

"You have the ability to change the world," he said. "Whatever position you're in now, if you don't like it, change it."
