I think that the way Malcolm X taught himself is very inspiring. There are a lot of student who basically have knowledge thrown at them and they still do not take the effort to take anything in. Malcolm X devoted all of his time to becoming a better reader and writer by choice unlike most high school students who feel they are forced. I think that all students should be more like Malcolm X and make learning interesting rather than painful. Malcolm X studied things that he was interested in and this makes me realize the importance of being in the right major in college. If you are interested in what you are doing you will get more into your work and be more successful.
