Zero to Hero is the true-life story of Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. as he takes participants from his youth growing up facing the challenges of poverty, drugs and alcohol in a Florida “hood” to his role as a national leader, educator, consultant and motivational speaker. Honest, raw and challenging, participants will hear the story of how, despite a support system, the temptations of 'street life' left him facing addictions, scared, insecure, lost and out of control.
