High 5 4 Kids: Rudolph Brown

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Rudolph Brown describes himself as "just somebody who is out there to make a difference in the community."

As a 17-year-old motivational speaker and radio show personality, he is certainly on the right track.

"I have a goal. My goal is to impact one person, at least one person a day," Brown said. "Make somebody's day brighter."

Some of these people are at Rudolph's school, the Richmond County Technical Career Magnet School, where he serves as the current student council president.

"He talks to everybody. Everybody knows Rudolph, no matter where you go," said Robert Boseman, Brown's classmate and friend. "He has a great respect for everyone around him."

What's even more notable is the respect that his teachers have for him.

"This young man has the ability to change the world, honestly, and I don't say that about a lot of students," Al Young, Brown's broadcast teacher, said. "I've never come in contact with a young man who is so conscientious of not only things that are going on in the world but things that are going on in his neighborhood."

Brown said he is also trying to change the mindset of his peers by encouraging them to stand out.

"You don't have to sag your pants," said Brown. "You don't have to try to fit in with the crowd. Being different is a unique thing. I tell people all the time, you're not different, you're unique."

And when he's not in school, motivating his peers, on the radio, or tending to his busy schedule, Brown does find pleasure in one thing.

"Fishing," Brown said while laughing. "That's a very relaxing thing to keep me calm and keep me relaxed and keep me motivated. I love to catch a fish every now and then."

Brown said his family and faith is what keeps him going.
