Don't be at a an observer of your own Future be a part of it take the Uncomfortable action do the work [Music] [Applause] Know this we all have our stories right We all have our back story we all have The thing that brought us to this moment I can remember so many things in life That were a millimeter away from Derailing me right I think I remember in My 20s you know I I was running away From a childhood without money and Watching my parents get married and Divorced a lot and and some days going To school without lunch money and I had Dyslexia so I wasn't the best in school And I can remember having two voices in My head I don't know probably as young As seventh grade I can remember being in Seventh grade with Mrs Thompson who was My special ed teacher because I had Dyslexia really bad and I remember going To her classroom remember the special ed Room listen most of you walked by the Special Ed I was the kid in it I was the Kid in there and Mrs Thompson always Used to yell at me just sound it out are You dumb are you stupid just sound it Out and I can remember being in that Room having trouble reading because my Dyslexia was so bad And I can remember all the way back in Seventh grade saying to myself wow I'm
