Some of you are pursuing your dreams. Some of you are pursuing the dreams of others. Some, going through the motions of this thing called college. Some students view college like a mathematical equation - merely a means to an end. For those of you who desire to do that thing no one supports - that thing no one thinks is reasonable or rational, I offer the following Fresh Air interview with Lin Manuel Miranda, the creator of the Broadway show, Hamilton. I also encourage you to check out the Fall 2015 Project MyStory blog series, Dreams Deferred by Tiffany Araya (Spring 2016 UAlbany Graduate).
I have two wonderful, supportive and very practical parents who are like, "You're really talented and really creative. You should be a lawyer," because there's a safe path there. I knew I was never going to be a lawyer. I knew that I wanted to make movies, and I wanted to write shows. - Lin Manuel Miranda
