This is my first time giving an advice to young friends. I hope this advice will help you in a near future. Also, I want you to remember this speech as the one that helped you to change some things. When you will think about this advice; you will agree with me in a lot of things that I told you today. I will start with one important thing, which is school. School is very important for your future. Don’t lose this great time that you have in school, and try to learn as much as you can every day in class. Always, ask your teacher any question that you have.
There are not silly questions in class; they will help you to get smarter. Get on time for all your classes, so you won’t miss a word from your teacher or an early quiz. The last think I can tell you about school is to study at home every day possible. If you practice any sport at school or on your free time always follow the rules. Don’t play dirty while others follow the rules. Remember, if you win a game or a competition in a clean way; the satisfaction will be greater, and your hard training will be rewarded.
Always be loyal to your coach and team members; they will be there when you need them. If you are in a high competition, your nutrition will be a key factor for your success. Now, be very careful when you write on Facebook or any social network, because it can give you a hard time or get you in a big problem. Years ago, we didn’t have any social networks, but now social networks are very common and you have to use them in a proper manner. I remember a police case in Atlanta about a post on Facebook.
A 16 year old teenager was arrested for a post he wrote on his Facebook. Apparently, he threatened a classmate with a gun. He posted on Facebook and his friends saw that post, and they told their parents. The parents informed the police and the teenager was arrested. This is a good story to remember if you are going to write on Facebook something that you have done lately. Finally, I want to thank you for this short time that you all gave me; time that is well invested to hear an advice that can help you in a decision that you may take soon or later in your life.
