With his charismatic anecdotes, Mayor Julian Castro delivered an emotional seizing opportunity keynote at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Castro has an inspirational tale that is exemplary and highly relatable for those who aspire to thrive. He begins with an anecdote in which he shares his family's story of immigration and perseverance that lead to their success in America. The tale ends with Castro's achievements as an educated individual who has gone on to become the mayor of San Antonio, Texas.
Perhaps the most inspirational statement by Julian Castro in this keynote is, "opportunity created today will lead to prosperity tomorrow." Seizing opportunity, exploiting chaos and perseverance have been the central values that helped this Latino mayor thrive. One can draw inspiration from this ideal to create a professional trajectory that is aware of prospective for success.
