Surname 1 Name Instructor Course Date “I Understand Who You Want Me to Be, but I'm Going To Show You Who I actually am." The statement "I understand who you want me to be, but I'm going to show you who I actually am” is a powerful statement that perfectly describes something a nonconformist would say. They are making it clear in that statement that they understand what is expected of them, but they choose to do things differently. This means being comfortable with standing out because one does not subscribe to the same rules as the rest. Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. It is my great pleasure to speak to you regarding the value of non-conformity in expressing one's true identity. To expound on this issue, I will be using two texts, and one is a speech delivered to the United Nations delegate by Malal Yousafzai, and the other one is a documentary film about Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant living in Los Angeles. The film showcases Guetta's life and his obsession with street art and his journey meeting dozens of famous street artists. Malal Yousafzai's speech is about her people taking back their power using pen and paper. Yousafzai believes there is power in education, and a lot can be changed in only people who were empowered using education and not violence and extremism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
