Last night, NTC celebrated GEW by exploring how The Pursuit of Happyness was relevant to entrepreneurship and innovation.
This cinematic experience explored how Chris Gardner (Will Smith) struggled with hardship while trying to provide for his young, five year old son, Christopher (Jaden Smith). Chris pursued his goal to be able to provide for his son, even if it meant persevering to secure the coveted stockbroker position where he was competing with 19 interns.
The movie definitely pulled a few heart strings but also left the students with an inspiring message 'to not give up'. Chris showed how perseverance and determination will allow one to reach their goals.
"You got a dream. You gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they wana tell you you can't do it. If you want something, go get it. Period."
- Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness.
