Everyday no matter what I do or hard it is I will never stop trying to encourage a teen to achieve at their highest level…
This is why when President Obama said in his speech that all people should further their education, I thought I would use this influential person’s message to motivate a teenager. I called my young nephew and said, “President Obama is encouraging everybody to further their education and to go back for higher education.” I held the phone tightly. I was thinking Obama is the first African American President, maybe my nephew will believe that all is possible; maybe he’ll listen this time. He jogged me out of my thoughts, “We should never have voted him in, huh?” I wasn’t expecting that. I hung up the phone.
Okay that didn’t work. I’m thinking about what to do next. I will never give up on him.
