Dr. Eddie M. Connor, Jr. is from Detroit, Michigan by way of Kingston, Jamaica. He is an Author, Empowerment Speaker, College Professor, Mentor, Political Advisor, Teacher, and Radio/TV Correspondent. Eddie was raised in a divorced household, by his mother who instilled in him, life long values.
 
At the age of 15, Eddie faced his greatest challenge being diagnosed with stage four cancer. Eddie endured chemotherapy, radiation, and hair loss. The pain of his biological father not visiting him in the hospital, almost made him give up. Through faith in God, perseverance, and persistence, he triumphed and beat cancer. Against all odds, Eddie overcame tremendous obstacles, even when people didn’t believe in his will to live. Eddie’s life is a testimony of the strength, to live through dying places. He transparently shares his story, as a best selling author of six books and encourages others to discover their purpose.
