Tommy's Talk
Tommy's Talk
Tommy Jarvis has spoken to audiences of up to 1500 teenagers about his journey of hope and God’s love.
Tommy's Story

“My name is Tommy Jarvis. At ten months old, I was left at a pub with only a guard dog to care for me. This is my story.”

Where I began
I was born in Lesotho in August, 1993. My father was working in Johannesburg so he could provide for my mom and I.

Ten months later my mom and I headed to Johannesburg to see my father. When we arrived we found out that my father was cheating on my mother with a girlfriend. My mom was very upset about this and tried to stab my father and his girlfriend. My father and his girlfriend ran away and my mom landed up in jail.

I was left at the pub where this fight happened, alone with only a guard dog to fight and take on the world.

Where I am now
I am currently living at TLC with a houseful of siblings and a passion for speaking to teenagers about how I ended up here from where I began.

I have spoken to audiences of up to 1500 people about my journey of hope and God’s love. I would love the opportunity to speak to teenagers in your organisation and share my story.

The Talk
My motivational speaking takes anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours and I charge according to the organisation. There is a question and answer session at the end of the talk and I do my best to answer openly any questions the teens might have. My aim is that your teenager will learn how to live a more positive life and understand that God does not make mistakes. Through my story I show them that when they go through pain they are not alone.

I cover all or some of the following topics in the talk, depending on your requirements:

  • Courage
  • God’s Miracles
  • Relationships
  • Being HIV+
  • Living life positively
  • Looking towards the future
