→ Be A Sponge For Information.
I took this photo earlier this year at the #SonyKandoTrip ,
and I remember how it set the tone for following months.
I consider myself a sponge for information, because I feel as if I am always learning👨🏾💻. When I was a teen my mother use to say, “you have two ears and one mouth, so listen more than you speak.”
I decided to combine my passion of media and storytelling, just about three years ago. 🎥
At first I spent most of my free time, only using online sources for creating knowledge. No matter what your passion or interests are I have a personal thought to share with you.
The best way to learn is from experience, and learning from the experienced.
On this trip, i got to meet and listen to the thoughts, or people I look up to. 👌🏾 It was my first time attending such an event, and it has changed the way I feel going forward.
Being content with JUST what you are learning / have learned in school, is not enough.
Take the extra step to listen to talks in person, and try to get some face time with others in attendance or the speaker.
It has answered so many questions for me, and being a member of the #AlphaCollective has highlighted the importance of community for me.
As much as I spend time 👨🏾💻 watching @garyvee and @ted talks, I have learned that the real life experience can offer so much more.
To my fellow college students out there, go find your passion and community. Time is the currency that matters to us right now, and my goodness are we wealthy.
Use it wisely.
