This speech is all about what I’ve learned here at the high school… all four glorious years. You know, I’m glad that Avon Lake chose me as the student speaker, because I know that some high schools bring in like super awesome extreme sports people to try and inspire their students.

Well good luck let’s begin:
1. You Don’t Have To Have A Dream.
If you didn’t know, I was adopted from Russia, so at eight months old, my dream was to wait the four hours for the nurse to feed me. Not all that awesome of a dream. But if you do have a dream, chase it. If it’s a big enough one and you want to spend your whole life chasing it, that by the time you achieve it it has taken
