B&B Reflections on Passion and Inspiration

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela 

“This can be interpreted in many different ways. I believe it’s interpreted into being the biggest person you can be.” – Elijah, TEAM Schools student

“To me, this is extremely inspirational, it encourages me to push my limits, to enjoy each day and not let life pass me by. Everyone is capable of achieving their own definition of greatness, but those who are satisfied with the minimum, never see this.” – Laura, IU student

“It means that one shall not seek satisfaction in what is less than their capabilities. As individuals, we should strive for more than the norm.” – Michaelle, TEAM Schools student

If you could write a big movie screenplay that had the possibility of being Oscar nominated and could change the way people view the world, what would it be about? Who would be the characters?

“My movie would be about global warming and most of the environmental issues today. My characters would be: smokers, litterbugs, and hunters. They all affect the world negatively, leading to global warming issues and catastrophic events.” – Alyssa, TEAM Schools student

“My story would be about a girl born into a family of artistic and musical geniuses. She yearns to become a dentist. She has to struggle against her family and her own self-doubt as she paves her own way.” – Samantha, IU student
