When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money.

That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is – everything around you that you call life, was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

The minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, you know if you push in, something will pop out the other side, that you can change it, you can mold it. That’s maybe the most important thing. It’s to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it.

I think that’s very important and however you learn that, once you learn it, you’ll want to change life and make it better, cause it’s kind of messed up, in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

The quote is from PBS’ “One Last Thing” documentary, which aired on TV in 2011.

Cortlan Wickliff, 22, is graduating from Harvard Law School on May 30, 2013. When he crosses the stage and receives his Juris Doctorate, Wickliff will be the youngest African-American to ever join the elusive law school alumni club.

Wickliff of Texas was the youngest African-American engineer in the United States when he finished a Bachelor’s of Science in Bioengineering at 19.

The Rice University alum’s research includes developing a heart-and-respiration-rate monitor for babies as well transforming pacemakers to monitor vital signs. Wickliff’s interest in medicine and engineering developed after his father died of a heart attack. He has devoted his energy to creating cost-effective medical advancements that can save lives.

Wickliff, who’s a member of the Root’s Young Futurists list, will pursue a Ph.D. in engineering at Texas A&M University.  Congratulations Cortlan Wickliff.  Keep up the good work.
