Born in Jacksonville, Florida where he still resides, inspirational poet Nate Spears is a poetry writer with a vision to change the world through his writings. Nate began writing short stories that amazed his elementary school teachers when he was only 7. However, a few years later football stole him away from writing, and this second passion followed him throughout high school and onto college, where he majored in elementary education at Edward Waters College. After leaving college, Spears had a growing concern about the world around him, especially the negativity that seems to be thrust at us from every direction in society. Spears was especially concerned about the effects of being exposed to such a stream of negative thoughts and images might have on young people, and a desire to make a difference inspired him to pick up the pen again in the winter of 2008. The result became Inspiration 2 Smile, a collection of poetry that he hopes will inspire others to find joy, even in life's most challenging situations. Nate also completed a spoken word album which is titled "Inspiration 2 Smile Spoken Word" and is working on his second collection of poetry set to release sometime in 2013.
