John Legend’s videos really inspired me when I looked into them. He talks about struggling being a first generation college student. Growing up with a mom who was struggling through drug addiction problems, and his parents divorce, he didn’t really have that same support system that he used to and so that definitely didn’t help the college process. It’s not like he could’ve asked one of his parents for help. I related to the fact that he also knew what he loved to do but also knew that there were going to be hardships along the way. He talks about how he’s always loved music from a very young age, around the age of 4. I found it inspiring how he talked about optimism when fighting failures in your life for the things you love.
