Today's Pep Talk, Brought To You By An Adorable, Fierce Girl

15 seconds in, I want to stand up and cheer. Not what I was expecting.

This is Eunice.

She's in fifth grade at the Kibera School for Girls in Kenya, and she's given herself quite the pep talk. It's one I think we all could benefit from hearing.

Eunice says she has a dream.


But she knows that everything great starts from something small. Just like her dream.


She says the journey is just as important as the destination.

Yeah, I know it sounds pretty cheesy. But to hear this tenacious little girl say it with such determination? Whoa.

And she reminds herself that dreams are there for the taking.

This is the part where I'm like, "YEAH, EUNICE. Let's do it!" And I get all inspired and motivated.

"So, dream!"

For the full effect, head on up to the video at the top of the post and give it a watch. But even if you don't have time for that, isn't this girl so great? This is the best motivational speech I've heard in a long time.

Eunice has a dream. What about you?

In one of the most glaringly hypocritical moves in recent history, the band formerly known as Lady Antebellum is suing black blues singer Anita "Lady A" White, to use her stage name she's performed under for over three decades.

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
