Be inspired by a journey of resilience, determination, and vision

“This little boy doesn’t have a chance in the world.”

A diary entry of a babysitter, was the prediction for Steve Pemberton’s future. But for him, that defeatist notion would have the exact opposite effect; it would inspire him to move forward through life and triumph over extreme adversity to become the chance, and the success, he believed he deserved in the world.

The movie "A Chance in the World" is based on Pemberton's book, "A Chance in the World: An Orphan Boy, A Mysterious Past, and How He Found a Place Called Home."

Pemberton is a featured speaker at IASB’s upcoming Equity Event, a unique opportunity to learn to work to help all students to achieve their full potential.
