Press release from Rohan's first speaking engagement at a correctional facility.

RIVERHEAD, NY-- Today, Rohan Murphy, a professional motivational speaker and former star wrestler from East Islip High School, visited the Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverhead and spoke to a group of young people participating in Sheriff Vincent F. DeMarco's Youth Tier Initiative. The event was sponsored by Eastern Suffolk BOCES, which runs the jail’s education program. Rohan, who was born with deformed legs, made a strong impression on the youth as he talked to them about how he had to overcome so many challenges in his own life – from accomplishing mundane activities like grocery shopping to realizing his dream of becoming an excellent athlete and a graduate of an Ivy League school.

Rohan told the youth that they, too, should never give up and said, “I want all of you to chase your dreams no matter how far away they may seem. Think about not having legs. I will not have one easy day in my life, but if I can overcome this, why can’t you? What’s stopping you?”

Sheriff Vincent DeMarco added, “Rohan is an exceptional athlete and speaker, as well as a shining example of how any life circumstance can be overcome with motivation and perseverance. My hope is that these young men will carry his message with them for the rest of their lives and never return to jail.”
