This moment right here brought tears to my eyes as I reflected and had my life do a major replay of all the struggles , pain and negative perceptions I have had to overcome to see this day . As a child I looked through the Guiness book of world records and 18 years later I broke a Guiness world record As a teenager I pictured my face on bill boards and on tv and I saw it happen , I lived it . I watch Movies and motivational speeches done in the honorary gown of a doctorate honor and here I am honored with the least likely career choice . I have heard so many doubts that through dance I can amount to nothing not to talk of being celebrated or honored on this level Infact on many levels . I am here surrounded by Academics honoring me not for a certificate but for the application of every ounce of knowledge I have acquired in life both in school and on the street. DREAM BELIEVE DARE DO – DR KAFFY ( ALÁJÒÓTÀ) #daretodream #drkaffy #danceboss
