It was great to have Nick on campus today speaking to our students. His motivational presentation was one from the heart. He used his disability in a humorous way to get across his message of motivation- don’t let anything keep you from achieving your goals. After knowing him from six years, I’ve seen him develop from a secure student- a wonderful student, into a wonderful presenter, spreading his message to others.

With gentle humor and great ideas, you moved most, if not all, of us to take a deeper look into our hearts to assess our dreams and goals. Thank you and congratulations!

I have been to many assemblies and have heard many speakers, but I’ve always felt that they were lying. You are the first speaker that I believed!

We were very fortunate to have Nick D’Agostino present to our high school students during the Week of Respect. His experiences and what he has accomplished thus far in his life provided meaningful lessons to our students on respect and perseverance. I particularly love his message of recognizing the “gravity,” things that hold you down in your life, and using those things as motivation to rise above, rather than as excuses for defeat. His motto of “Think Longer – Love Stronger” has value to any audience.

If I could pick a person who embodies kindness and generosity, it would be Nicholas Albert D’Agostino. Not only does he have an amazing heart, but he is so hardworking and giving. He makes others around him strive to be better. Nick, in two words, is “The Man.”

Nicholas stands up to the integrity test so many business leaders lack! He is a man you can trust both in decision and action.

Finding a real man of integrity and excellence is so hard these days. Nicholas’ love for people is so inspiring to me and to so many! He has a great light about him that shines so brightly. When you are around him, you want to be better. I have always known him to help others and give hope to people who are struggling. He is an amazing human being. I am so blessed to be his friend!

Nicholas D’Agostino is a genuine, stand up dude. Upon meeting him you may see that as an almost contradiction of terms, until he runs you over with his passion. Hard work coupled with intellect and a poetic license makes him a formidable match for any mission or debate about a mission. A rising star in life, get his rookie card while you can still afford it.

Nicky is love. He lives his life to the very fullest and throws himself wholeheartedly into every project he starts. He’s always looking at the bigger picture of things and is a once in a lifetime friend!

I found Nick and The Safe Heaven when I was looking to help a cause that I care deeply about. Nick is an amazing person, doing
much needed work, to show people who are suffering that they matter.
