Meet the Authors
The astounding, against-all-odds story of a young man's rise from abject poverty in gang-ridden Los Angeles to the pinnacle of academic achievement as a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford. Academics and athletics led to college scholarships, which led to a Fulbright and eventually the Rhodes. Along the way, Moore cofounded a student organization that brought college athletes into underprivileged classrooms as inspirational speakers, role models, and mentors. Moore's eye-opening, inspirational story proves that, contrary to what others told him on his journey, there is no such thing as A Dream Too Big.
