The students at Lawndale High School was some of the most attentive students i’ve had the privilege to speak to. They paid attention to absolutely every word i said, without any distractions. Only thing i didn’t like about the Lawndale speaking engagement was the short amount of time that i had. I only had a lunch break worth of time to speak, but i made the most of it.
I told more stories in this class since i was so pressed for time. The students wished i would of spoke longer as well. So many of them walked up to me after my speech to tell me how relatable i was. They also asked me very personal questions that they said they’ve never opened up to anyone about. I got invited to come speak again at Lawndale, and i am going to take them up on that offer!
