I saw this and just had to share it with you. There should not be a reason in this country that someone can’t succeed at their dream. Watch this and let me know if you agree.

Wow. That’s all I got Chris. Just wow.
i’ll second that. Wow. Wow.
I’m with Matt. Amazing what can happen when you take away the distractions of video games and let young people use their imaginations.
He had a problem to solve, so he solved it. That is the essence of an entrepreneur.
Everything he did was to serve or improve the lives of those around him. Wonderful!! “Ya, that’s what I plan to do.” Thanks for sharing.
That video brought to mind this very short TED talk video I just saw earlier this week: http://www.ted.com/talks/ludwick_marishane_a_bath_without_water.html
So what’s OUR excuse not to change the world? Great reality check.
Here’s the link to William’s TED talk. http://www.ted.com/talks/view/lang/en//id/642
Holy cow. Amazing. Makes me want to slap people when they say “I can’t find what I’m looking for on Google!” [in whiny Louis CK voice]
Try, I haven’t been on the Internet. Ever. And I’m 20 years old. Wow!
I believe that there is a line of passion and truth that runs through the heart of people. He tapped into that truth. Awesome. I think it is time to build a windwill.
Remarkable man – that sort of self-sufficiency is very admirable. I’m looking forward to hearing how he achieves his dreams!
Jana, you can check out his website http://williamkamkwamba.com/
Thank you, Lily. I’ve saved that site for further reading. I did see he is a senior at DARTMOUTH – WOW! I am interested to know when and how he learned English. This man will go far in life!
The part of this video that strikes me the most besides his creativity and perseverance is the humilty of this young man.
Thank you for this video, very reflective and inspiring.
Wow. Sitting here with tears in my eyes. Dream big. This young man is amazing. Thank you for sharing Chris!
And usually in America, someone can look in a book and say, “That’s so cool. I wish I could do that, but it’ll take too much…” Or we just look at it and say we shouldn’t do it because it’s already been done. His reaction: “How can I make this work with what I have? How can I make it bigger/better?”
He didn’t wait for anyone to give him permission to improve his life. Bravo!
