For the first two weeks Roby Platt dreaded going to his entrepreneurial studies class. Forced to tell his story and pitch himself to his classmates was more than he could handle.
“I’ve dealt with not fitting in before, it’s made me a sensitive person,” Roby said.
“The initial feedback I got would really upset me. I wanted to drop the class. It felt like I couldn’t do it no matter how hard I tried.”
But soon enough Roby realised that these struggles were part of the learning process in this innovative course. By learning to tell his story and owning it, he discovered a lot about himself and how he responds to others.
