As we go through life, we experience times of happiness and there are times where we may experience sadness. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, your looks, or even how popular or unpopular you are, everybody has felt with some type of depression. Some people can deal with problems better than others. If I could do something I love and make a living out if it I would be an inspirational speaker.
I feel as an inspirational speaker, I could speak to people, young or old, and give advice on how to better their self esteem and how to deal with their problems. I can’t help everyone, but I feel if I speak on my journey from the time I moved away from my mom’s house and suffering through homelessness to working on my 4th college degree, people will find the inspiration to go to college or get through whatever depression has put them through.
In order to be an inspirational speaker, I would first go to college to obtain my degree in public speaking. I would take any classes possible such as any English classes or speech classes. I have some minor experience in speaking in public places, so I think that would help me. I would first start doing speeches at the middle and high schools to gain more experience. I’m hoping that someone would discover me and hire me to be a traveling speaker so I can speak to people all over the United States.
