“I want to be a successful designer and own my own clothing store” – Young King 2005

The words above is a quote from my old high school’s yearbook that I said. I didn’t realize that I said these words until I came back to Germantown High for the first time since 2005 for “I’m A Boss Day.”  A former classmate of mine, who was there, reminded me of this. This inspired me, due to the fact that along my road to success, my thoughts along the way when exiting high school was to tell myself and others that I never really knew what I wanted to do. The thing was that I really did know what I wanted to do, I just didn’t have any direction while doing it.

That was my main speech this day. Sometimes you may not have a clue or even be qualified for many opportunities, but hard work, dedication and consistency are the few keys to success whether you have experienced a great education or not. I told the students at Germantown High my many ups and downs as well as the benefit and roles that school, teachers, and parenting played upon their arrival to the big leagues.   My story was a perfect example of not being a product of your environment and overcoming the many stereotypes of today’s world.  Though I have so much more to accomplish,  I felt that I was a great representation of  how you can ” Turn Your Dreams To A Reality.”- K.R.T.
