“Champions, Success Stories, Leaders and Visionaries can be carved out of life’s adversities. Mentors have been great sources of support, encouragement, knowledge and inspiration. Santi’s Quest is one of those stories. I was moved. I wanted to learn more. I wanted to help. I like Tim & Santi, let us join the Quest, with these mentors — who are courageous and have the heart to make a difference particularly those…that hurt.”
“I welcomed Santiago to our home in Florida, this is what I learned.”

“Santiago has created a powerful, compelling movie that forces us to look into a brutally honest reality – that must be addressed – for healing wounded hearts.”
“He is a passionate crusader for what is right – he reminds me a lot of Mike Singletary’s character & intensity; Santi’s message in Quest is poignant and he creates openings that can be gateways to freedom for those who hurt.”
“What I get from Trust Your Struggle is that your struggle is the adversity that will carve out the champion inside of you – in Santi’s inspiring journey from the abuse, to Stanford, then to his success on Wall Street – is nothing short of astonishing. He courageously challenges us to work through our struggle – such that new power, ideas, creativity, solutions emerge that changes YOU and your story forever.”
“After seeing the movie, I sat… in a stunned silence; knowing that I just saw and experienced a voice and vision that will change a generation.”
“I wanted to meet him immediately; he’s courageously honest, and inspires all of us to “do the right thing” – requiring us to look at some of the deepest needs in our community; and he offers each of us a chance to become a bigger part of the solution.”
“Quest leaves us with one of the most important questions of this generation. To love.”
“Santi forces us to look at ‘hard’ and ‘real’ but he refuses to leave us there; through Tim (his mentor); we are reminded of the power of love that can lift others to a new life and new liberty beyond the pain.”

“This movie is about reconciliation, forgiveness and love; that to me is the most profound message. Santi reaches out to not only the ‘pain’ of the abused; but also the ‘pain’ of the abuser.”
“There is power, life, hope and freedom in forgiveness and reconciliation. Forgiving is difficult for sure but offers such a profound freedom and a bigger future. And, frankly stated – a truth that must be strongly considered — we become who we don’t forgive.”
“This is no movie – this is a movement that this generation must consider strongly. We all can play a part. We all must be part of the solution. Children are born with love and kindness; harming others and harming yourself is a learned behavior that destroys relationships, dreams and the tremendous gifts – called hope, solutions, courage, effort and determination.”
“I can think back to dozens of “mentors” that reached out and saw what was good in me. And they pulled me up with their love and belief and inspired and valued me – They made a difference. And it’s because of their love and belief that I owe my success, vision, power and determination – to live a life that counts… as I journey from success to significance; as I shift from what I “Do” to what God created me “For.” And that’s when true life suddenly appears and get incredibly big and important.”
“There is truly a Tale of Two Cities — some children live lives filled with love and value and thrive in the support and stability, while others must struggle to survive; as the support falls out of their lives — Santi’s Quest forces us to look at ourselves and answer a very direct question… ‘what are you doing to make a difference in a child’s life.'”
“Many live their lives in the world of privilege and promise,– imagine a world and community — with a Quest of love, compassion and courage to reach the hurting. Dreams shattered can be rebuilt with love. Hearts can be wounded yet some parts can be restored. Santi remind’s us of these truths that Tim embodied. This type of love and courage is much needed.”
“Santi’s Quest is a loud shout of hope and inspiration. Some are thrust into a world we would not want; a world that so many have lived and are living. Yet though the love and kindness of a teacher — a brutalized child is rescued and suddenly soars to bigger promise and success that is beyond astonishing. Once you see the movie; you will never be the same.”
“More than the revealing of Tim’s incredible kindness and compassion; more than Santi’s amazing achievements, is the moment when we are left — alone with ourselves; with revealing questions about our own Quest. Watch the movie…”
