PASS IT ON: HOW TO TEACH THE NEXT GENERATION

“Teach them well.”


they learn from us first

Whenever we eat certain foods, remember that a generation is behind us watching. So it is in our best interest to try to make sure we set that example for the next group. They see us exercising, then they will want to follow suit and do the same. We eat certain foods good for our bodies then they will also. But there is a slight catch, young people generally don’t take their cues from older generations. They take their cues from people that are young who are in the public eye. So an athlete looks cooler eating fruits and vegetables than a middle aged man or woman. It’s the reason brands gives endorsement deals to athletes.

creatures of habit

We do something 3 times in a row, it will continue for 5 – 10 times, and so on. That is how we will approach teaching a group underneath us. They need to understand that just as with anything in our lives that we continuously do, we have to look at the same with health. You come everyday from school and do homework, that same thing must be applied to the idea of eating right and exercising. We should have an open gym opportunity for working out like we do for open gym basketball courts. Not everyone hoops, but some want to do other things. Once we start them off early, we do so for years and they take over after a while.

we need to know as well

They don’t know if we ourselves can’t comprehend as well. There are far too many adults that are not well-educated in how to care for themselves like their offspring. And it comes as no surprise that when the parents are unhealthy so are the children. Now, for people like my mother who battled weight issues, she always told her kids to care for self because of what it did to her. So in order for “them” to do better “we” have to do better.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
