Although on a break, Engle continues to create with his activism and has been featured in a six-page centerfold spread for “The Columbus Book Project” which highlights the best of Columbus Ohio. Engle was invited to give the keynote at TEDx Moreau Catholic High in Hayward California and shortly after receiving the coveted opportunity to share his story with Toastmasters Tv.
