The moment ms. Maxwell said “people who are changing world” Elon musk was the first person to pop up into my mind. He inspires me because of the reasons he does what he does. He was once asked the reason why he had the crazy dream of creating an all-electric car? His answer was “In university, I thought what are the problems that will most likely to effect the future of the world?” That shows what kind of revolutionary and pragmatic man he is.
A teacher, a scholar a rebel, They’s are some of the key characteristics of the man behind SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity and with a 13.9 billion dollar net worth one of the most powerful and influential people in the whole world. Musk has stated that the goals of SolarCity, Tesla, and SpaceX revolve around his vision to change the world and humanity.
To change the world it takes so much more than sheer talent! You need openness, a willingness to work hard and most importantly a reason you push yourself on a daily basis. Think to yourself why do you get out of bed and work as hard as you possibly can doing something you love? And if you can’t answer that question, are you?!
The first part of the project was to make a collage. A college is challenging because you need to show the emotion and life of your world-changing genius. I was thinking way too hard on this blog you’re reading, so I decided to numb my mind on what app I could use to make my collage. I decided to use my go to apps…… Phonto and Superimpose!!
