What an outstanding personality this guy had. He just had so much energy packed inside of him, that I never expected it by looking at him. One of his points was that everyone is an actor, we just have to acknowledge it. He did kind of take me out of my comfort zone by making us speak our opinions strongly and assert our feelings with strength. He did a great job in trying to energize me and make me want to be myself. After this class I once again was reinforced in the idea that I should be who I am, and express my ideas as I wish.
I believe that if it was not for FYI I would never have been able to actually meet such interesting people. Even if I met them, they would not have been able to show this side to me. The suprising part is that all of these guest speakers are professors and teachers. All professors have interesting stories about their lives, and things they would like to share with students. All professors have office hours and they should be utilized to the fullest extent. It makes professors feels good explaining their profession to you, and you are able to learn of how they did everything. Another plus you receive is that you are able to get a better personal recommendation since the professor has gotten to know you a little more than in class.
