After Barista my friends and I went to the street and we saw this man named Andrew Patterson and he works as a radio D.J. He was talking about what we might do in the future.
After he had a little talk he showed us a video of a college kid named Iavana that went to Manurewa college. He was talking about how he wasn’t very good at college and he didn’t know what he was good at and then he found out that he was good at talking and doing speeches. He was quite funny. Iavana got to speak for a lot of people and company’s and he could talk really fast. I thought that was quite impressive.
As soon as the video finished the man Andrew Patterson came back up and introduced a man that used to work on the show “ What Now” and his name is Anthony Samuels. He was telling us about how he is learning maori. There was a word he told us in maori it was “ you are amazing”. Anthony Samuels showed us some funny photos of him when he was on what now and he told us a funny story about a man and a ferret.
Then there was a man named Paula and he said he was a “good swimmer” but the most important speech he gave us was “ i’m not scared of you not succeeding but i’m scared that you're not going to try. Paula was another one that was so funny. Paula told us a story of when he was our age i was a story about when he almost died swimming in a pool. When Paula was our age 12 and 13 they had a pool at their school and he was very tall and his school mates were really small so he told us that he always use to run in the water because he could touch the ground, so he use to go into competitions and one day they were competing in an olympic size pool and he didn’t know how big the pool was so he went to walk and he couldn’t touch the floor and he was drowning.
And there were heaps of people that were so inspirational. When they all finished their own speeches
