On return from Yorkton Saskatchewan, Scott Ward and Kigen Martin are feeling very greatful to have been able to put on a fun filled show for the local youth. Wonder was felt and smiles were shown as the performers shared their talents and passions on the stage. Scott and Kigen hope that their performance motivates and inspires the youth to follow their passions and pursue their dreams. Every individual has the potential to achieve anything they set their mind too, this is an underlying message that Scott and Kigen strive to convey. It is an absolute honour for the performers to be able to step into the lives of these extremely talented youth. They hope that they are able to create a fire in the hearts of many to become the people that they want to be. Keep dreaming and never give up.
On August 30th, Going M.I.L.E.S. headed out to Wawa Ontario to motivate their youth and share some wonder. After two full days of the drug and alcohol awareness workshop, the community was brought together to enjoy a stage show containing hypnotism, magic, music, and wonder. That evening Going M.I.L.E.S. leaders Dakota House, Scott Ward, and Kigen Martin hit the stage, spreading the message that no matter who you are or where you live any dream is achievable. Day three of the workshop rapped up this action packed, fun filled seminar. After saying some rather sad goodbyes the Going M.I.L.E.S. stars flew out of Ontario, and onto their next workshop. “Spreading the magic of youth is a powerful tool,” says magician Kigen Martin “it’s a real honour to be able to visit these communities and connect with all of their youth on a personal level.” Going M.I.L.E.S. strives to empower youth worldwide to chase down every dream, and to always motivate, inspire, lead, empower and succeed.
Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Kigen Martin and I am the newest member of Going M.I.L.E.S. I discovered Magic when I was 8 years old, as soon as I began to practice and learn I became addicted. Very soon after my introduction to magic I became a walking encyclopedia of magic tricks and effects. I began performing at the age of 9, and I haven’t been able to stop since. Through magic I strive to teach the public that anything is possible, no matter what your dream may be. I have now been practicing magic for 10 years and I believe that through magical demonstrations and interactions, people can go away motivated to chase down their dream and achieve them. The wonder in the eyes of the spectators is what fuels my fire to continue to spread wonder to people worldwide. Join me as I share with you the magic that I have disscovered in life.
