Questions! Questions! And More Questions!
Hao’s Houston Book Tour kicked off with an emphatic bang today at Nottingham Elementary School, thanks to the young, bright, inquisitive minds of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders that attended Hao’s book talk event this morning. His motivational presentation on perseverance, grit and finding your true passions in life really made a colossal impact on the students of Nottingham Elementary.
“What an awesome morning we had! The students were so attentive and very good listeners – they were paying attention to every single word Hao was saying,” exclaimed Carole Said, the local franchisee hosting the event from the Tully-Memorial Best in Class Education Center. “They started asking questions even during the talk. So many times, the teachers had to stop and remind them to save their questions till the end!”
As you can see from the photo, many of the confident, astute Nottingham students came prepared to find out absolutely everything they could about Hao’s life. Hao commented, “They asked me so many questions about everything! From my wife, Lisa, to my birthday, to the food I ate in jail… It was incredibly inspiring to see them so excited and invested in my story.”
Hao concluded his presentation by providing the students with a handout containing important questions to ask one’s self this year and for every year thereafter, and he encouraged them to save it and continue to ask themselves what their passions are as they grow up and change over the years. For all the questions they had ready for him, Hao had one last very important question to leave them with at the end, “I’ve shown you what my story is, now what is your story going to be?”
With such an inspiring group of young leaders present today, we look forward to hearing about all the future CEO’s and Entrepreneur stories that will come out of the Spring Branch Independent School District in the next few decades!
Thank you, Nottingham Elementary, for the perfect start to this Houston Book Tour!!!
