My Unread Letter (My Motivational Speech)

   I just want to thank you for the chance to tell you about who I am and what I’m trying to accomplish. I’m assuming that even if you didn’t ask me, you must have wanted to know who I really am? Now simply I couldn’t describe myself in one word, but if I had to; the word that defines me the most is creativity. Let me describe that for you in the sense you could understand and relate to.


   I am a brother, I’m a son, and I am the pure definition of hope and will power. I was told that life throws you curveballs and you have to adapt, but see I have a different approach to that. See sometimes life throws you a curveball and it has information attached to it. Yet it’s how you prospect the information that can change the difficult situations that life produces. 


   See I consider myself a knowledge swallower, mostly defined as a philosopher. I am a poet and motivational speaker. I have and will always continue to be loud noise meant for those to hear. I have seen the difficulties that life has shown, but I have prevail every single time. What I’m truly trying to say is, I don’t know how be stopped or failure, because I wasn’t taught that and if I have stumbled upon failure it surely has disappeared before anyone else has noticed. I have witnessed the poverty that floods us and my goals are to travel the world and change lives. My family has shown me true hard work and sacrifice.


   See let me tell you what that resume can’t, my mother father’s people were immigrants from Europe and her mother’s grandmother’s people were salves. See I have never let my skin define me, see I know a suit doesn’t make the man; but I have taught myself to cultivate the shapes and curves of a suit. I have learned how to tie a tie four different ways to camouflage myself into what I what others to project you as. I have even grown up without a father and I have a learning disability, I’m dyslexic but that still doesn’t define.


   Yet I do know what does define me, self-taught abilities. It’s not what you are born with that says who you are going to be or how you will turn out. It’s what you do with your abilities and how you make them useful. I made it to this point in my life by not sitting down and letting other do things for me or even waiting for things to come to me: but because I believed it, because I wanted it, and because I made it vulnerable to be captured.


  I come from a family of artists with all their own special abilities. Mine is to make people believe in me, that no matter where you came from or how you started that it’s not to late to change it; you just have to want it bad enough. I just wanted to say what I didn’t get to mention in our interview, that I appreciated every second you took out of your day for me. That this is what really matters, that I get to wake up every single day to show people what I am not and what I’m capable of.


         Sincery yours,
