On Thursday, Inspirational Speaker Kirk Nugent spoke about his experiences to Albany State freshmen and sophomores, hoping to inspire them. He says he hopes to encourage students to pursue their passions.
"I've met so many people in corporate America that they're not living their dreams. There are so many people not even in corporate America but anywhere, they're doing something and they're just collecting a paycheck and that's no way to live," says Nugent.
Nugent also says he wants students to not feel entitled to material items or special treatment. He says they need to work hard for what they want.For more information on Nugent's inspirational speeches, visit his website here.
