Pittman is Keynote Speaker at Cottondale High School Black History Program
Thanks to Mr. Demeetrius Beachum for inviting me to be the keynote speaker at Cottondale High School Black History Program. It was an honor to be able to speak to the students about "Dreams"! It was so ironic that I was chosen because:
1) I was the first African American majorette at Cottondale High School.
2) I am apart of CHS Class of '86 which means this year is our 30 year class reunion.
In my speech, I referenced people who had dreams such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (civil rights leader), Malala Yousafzai (activist for female education), and Frederick M. Jones (inventor of the air condition unit). I asked "What if they didn't dream?" I gave them four keys to help them dream.
1. Don't be afraid to dream and to dream big.
2. Don't let anyone talk you out of your dreams, not even yourself.
3. Write down your dreams.
4. Speak your dreams on a daily basis.
