Yesterday I spoke at a local high school to ninth graders. I shared my story to three separate classes and also talked about goal setting. I think it went good. The speeches got better each time I spoke. They also asked a lot of questions which helps me and helps the time to go by faster.
The only thing that I would change next time is not to speak to three one-hour classes in a row. I became very exhausted and I was starting to lose my voice by the last speech. I even had to have my mom talk a couple of times to give myself a break. I am excited for whatever opportunity comes up next.
"Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can't prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you're presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice and the choice can be power."
