In Conversation with John Cena: Be A Work in Progress

John Cena attributes his success to remaining completely authentic and his never give up attitude, but his path to becoming who he is today was far from easy. From being bullied as a kid to having to sleep in his car, Cena never let his challenges define him. Achieving blockbuster success across multiple industries, Cena shares inspiring stories from his unique journey and how authenticity, positivity, hope and the drive to continually challenge himself has shaped his career.

John will be available for photos in the exhibit hall for a limited time after his keynote!
