Last week, I started sharing personal lessons from my college days. These lessons were originally presented around this time last year during my convocation speech to Adrian College’s class of 2018. This week, I want to share my advice on finding your spark.
Over the past few weeks, countless college freshmen have confidently embarked on their college careers with their mini-fridges and laptops in tow. Around this time last year, I was honored to present the convocation speech at my alma mater, Adrian College. As the class of 2019 settles in, I want to share a few highlights from my speech.
Crafting a great story, for any medium, is a frightening, exhilarating, exhaustive supremely rewarding endeavor.
