Today, I was in Liverpool where I met the students at Liverpool Community College, went to the Museum of Liverpool, got to steer a ferry, went to the Cavern Club where the Beatles started and rode the Echo Wheel. Meeting the students was an awesome experience and it gave me a chance to tell my story to inspire younger kids.
Why do you tell your story?
There are a lot of people out there that need help – they don’t have the direction, so I tell my story to inspire.
What did you do right after telling your story?
I had the opportunity to help present the school with a plaque because of their efforts and commitment to learning about the Olympics through Get Set.
What did you do at the Museum of Liverpool?
I learned about boxing history from the curator of the sports (memborabilia) exhibit. I learned there are over 30 – 40 boxing clubs around Liverpool.
Dinner - How was it?
It was great – I had Thai coconut green curry. I thought it was only going to be traditional food, but they also have a lot of modern cuisine from all over including Japanese and Thai.
What was your favorite thing that you saw/did?
My favorite experience was not only to ride the ferry, but getting to steer it – it was cool.
What is something you never knew about Liverpool?
I had no idea the Beatles came from Liverpool.
Three words to describe Liverpool:
Legacy, the people and enthusiasm.
My highlight of Liverpool, was getting to go on the bridge of the ferry and steer the ferry with the First Mate.
