When Trevor Romain was 12, his teacher told him he wasn’t talented enough to do art. By accident, he found out 20 years later that he could draw. Since that lucky day, he has written and illustrated more than 50 books for children. His books have sold more than a million copies worldwide and have been published in 18 different languages. Trevor also travels to schools, hospitals, summer camps, and military bases throughout the world, delivering stand-up comedy with inspirational self-help messages to hundreds of thousands of school-age children.
Trevor, who is passionate about helping young people face and overcome tough challenges, has been the president of the American Childhood Cancer Organization and is well known for his work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the United Nations, UNICEF, USO, and the Comfort Crew for Military Kids, which he co-founded. He has performed on multiple USO tours, has visited and worked with former child soldiers and at refugee camps and orphanages, and has worked with the United Nations developing educational materials for children living in armed conflict areas.
