In AVID we have been learning about the different careers that are available around the world by interviewing guest speakers by video chatting. One speaker that we interviewed was Ms. Blalock who is a new products coordinator for new tennis gear. I have learned from her in many ways, but one way that really stuck with me is that she is doing what she loves and is getting paid for it. She has worked hard at tennis and her dedication has finally paid off and she is now working a job of a lifetime. Not only she is doing what she loves, but she is also someone who gives out great advice. She told us to follow your dreams no matter how crazy they may seem. Also she told us to go to college because there is a career for almost anything that you could think of. For example, if you love dance and robotics you could help people who can't walk be able to dance by creating robotic legs for them. Her interview impacted my by showing me to keep doing what I love and to go to college and to make the best out of your life because you belong somewhere, no matter how far away it is.
