The Relevance of Dr. King Jr.

By 2233aes18 Jan 2021

Martin Luther King Jr., an equal rights activist, was a prominent #figure in the #American Civil Rights Movement in the fight for #equality. He delivered his most well known speech, “I have a Dream'', just five years before he was assassinated. The third Monday of January was later deemed Martin Luther King Junior Day in remembrance of #Dr.King. Although Dr. King has been gone for 52 years, he still holds great relevance for #skoolmentor students today. He showed #highschool and #college students that they should fight for what they believe in and that they deserve to be considered equal no matter what. Dr. King was a black male in 1960’s segregated America, but even though he had so many factors fighting against his #success and his ability to create change, people are still remembering him and his accomplishments six decades later. This shows students today that they can #achieve success, and that these factors fighting against their ability to succeed are just obstacles in the road, not stop signs.

Gratitude

The word #gratitude is a hard word to say this year. 2020 has not been a great year for many, but it’s important to #reflect on the year’s victories, however small. This is especially true during the season of gratitude. For me personally, this year has been filled with many hardships, and I often let them outweigh the victories. My dad had lost his job due to the pandemic, there was a possibility my family was moving states away, I could not see anyone outside of the four walls of my home, and I had to put my passion for volleyball on the backburner. However, the best thing to happen to me this year came near the end of the year, when I was just hoping for a brighter 2021. This #opportunity was getting an internship with SkoolMentor. I worked in doing their social media remotely. The #internship with SkoolMentor might have been temporary, but it led me to a career I could see myself doing for a long time. I ended up reaching out to a local, at-home bakery that staffed with only the owner. She had just announced the bakery’s opening days before, and I asked if they needed a social media manager. The bakery soon blew up and it is crazy to think that I was there from the beginning. I can now say that I am half of an extremely successful business because of the opportunity #SkoolMentor presented me. This experience has reminded me to count my #blessings and know that through hardship, there is always something wonderful ahead.

Figuring Out Your Future

#College. It’s a hefty word, full of so much meaning it could almost be its own sentence - almost. For most, the process is paralyzing to the mind, created from too much stress and too many mental breakdowns. It’s a process that dictates their students’ life choices for four plus years before it has even begun. Now what happens when you're that person, you know, the person who had those four plus years to prepare themselves for college and figure out what they wanted in life, and just, didn’t. As a #highschooler myself, I’ve seen many in this predicament. In my opinion, here are some helpful things to do if you have no idea what you want for your future. To apply to college you need to have your #major picked. Don’t worry about picking the right one - the average college student changes their major three times. A safe bet is to choose to major in business. #Business is an extremely broad field, with a wide spectrum of jobs to choose from. This major also allows countless different types of business classes to choose from. Most of your actual business courses will be taken during your junior and senior year. This gives you more time to figure out what you really want to do and get your general education classes out of the way. Another positive to choosing a business major if you have no goals for the future is that it has a lesser course load than other majors. The lower amount of course work a business major provides allows you time to find an #internship or a part-time job. This will help you gain experience and also help you find out what you like to do. Don’t worry if you hate the first internship or job you take on, find a different one and see what works for you. Overall, when you have no idea what you want in life, but you're constantly being pushed to figure it out fast, don’t panic. Follow these tips to help figure out what you want to do.
