Speech of the Week: Baltimore Student Teach For America Passionate Speech
What can I say about this Speech of the Week post besides… Truly Inspiring.
Allow for me to set the scene: a young Baltimore student delivers one of the most passionate, moving and emotionally charged speeches I’ve seen. Elijah Miles gave a speech that came from his heart. He was able to identify something in his own life that turned into a testimony for others.
The important point to take from the speech is that we should all pay it forward and give back. Even if you come from a bad neighborhood and everyone is telling you that you have to leave, you shouldn’t forget where you started. Elijah delivered his speech in a very enduring and novice way that translated into a very relatable story.
From Elijah, we can all learn that we should turn our frustrations into opportunities to make change in the world. I believe that Elijah Miles has begun to make a change with this speech.
