I will be heading down to New Haven in early October to meet with some Yale undergraduates. I’m really excited.
A new student group, focused on helping low-income students of all races, has invited me to come down and meet their members.
I’ve decided I will talk about Life Lessons. I don’t know how many will be there, nor whether they’ll like what I’m about to say. I remember as a student listening to alumni talk about what their decisions in life. They seemed so old, and, in a way, irrelevant to my day-to-day life.
Over time, I’ve worked hard to be a better public speaker. I’ve spoken in front of groups of five to 5,000. One thing I’ve learned is this: speak from the heart.
I’m starting to prepare my talk. What would you tell undergraduates? What Life Lessons would you try to communicate?
