Be Yourself (Speech)

I often hear people saying they want to be like this or that person. But not me. I want to be the best version of me. I don’t want to be another Dr. King or another Michael Jordan. I want to be the original K. Exum.

People love to try and be like someone when they need to be themselves. You work yourself up every day to be somebody else when you need to be yourself. Don’t try and be another Michael Jordan when you know you can strive to be better. The world is in your hands. Make a name for yourself. Give the world something to remember you by. Your talents can change the world. You can make a difference on this earth.

Do you. Defy the odds and be you. I was kept back from being me for a long time. Trapped in the shadows of others when I realized I am me and I can do me. Life is what you make of it. Fight the odds. Create your own legacy. You will lose yourself trying to be someone else.
