A little while back we had a speaker for United we stand come and talk to us on campus. Lamarr Womble had come in from New York. LaMarr had first lived in Nebraska then he had moved to New York. It was a huge change for him going from a small town to a big city. He described it as he had done everything in his town he could have and was ready to move on where he could pursue his dreams. LaMarr for the longest time had wanted to be a fashion designer which was one of the main reasons he had moved.
One interesting point that LaMarr had brought up when it comes to pursuing your dreams you can’t always do what you want. This was a good point because it’s very true and not many speakers use this as a point. For example, if you are color blind unfortunately you can’t join the air force even though it may be your dream. He also brought up a super cool point, you should be your major plus. By this he means you can still do your major and have a hobby that you feel strongly about. For example, for me I can be a mechanical engineer plus a sky diver. You can be more than one thing and pursue what you want. My favorite part that LaMarr brought up was that whatever your dream is you should do it because someone has to. If you want to be a doctor then do it, don’t settle for something less because you could be taking someone else’s dream. By this he means if you want to be like a stunt driver then you need to pursue that dream and not something else. If you become a civil engineer instead because you don’t think you would have it you could be taking that job away from someone who dreams of becoming one.
LaMarr’s main points involved talking about pursuing your dreams. Even if it is not what your major is you can do both you can still have a job as your major but still do something you love. For myself, my major is mechanical engineering but I have always dreamed of becoming a licensed sky diver. I still can have a job as a mechanical engineer plus be a licensed sky diver. You should never let something or someone stop you from pursuing your dreams or just doing what you love. Even if it’s just a hobby make it a point that with your career you will still continue to do the things you love. One example he had used is that someone who loves to work on cars will many times stop if they get a career not involved with cars. They still have a passion for it but they just stop. He says you should have a goal to be your career plus, like talked about above. LaMarr had some great points and everyone can learn from him.
