"Do you realize,
That you are a Champion
In their eyes?
Yes I did,
So I picked it up and brought it back to the crib…"
My thoughts personified by Kanye West ala the Graduation album. I often go through these “spells” where I get bursts of inspiration and I’m ready to take over the world. “Champion” and “I wonder” run like soundtracks to the thoughts of grandeur that play through my head. How am I going to get this million?
Though I haven’t quite figured that part out yet, (lol) upon graduating from college I made myself a five year plan. In that plan I vowed to help those in my community. I am very passionate about the advancement of today’s youth, especially in a city like Chicago where we have so much diverse talent. There are so many sites dedicated to different niches that attract our young people socially, but there are few sites dedicated to helping us get that dream job that’s going to get us the things that we desire.
So that phrase, “I picked it up and brought it back to the crib” really resonates with me because I feel it is my duty to take the knowledge and skills acquired in academia and bring it back to feed into the community. Hence the creation of The Corporate Stunt- a resource full of tips, insights, and articles geared to create or sharpen ones competitive edge, and celebrate those who have excelled.
Do you realize that you are a champion? Let’s grow together, Chicago.
