10 ISSUE 111 / 2018 GUESTLIST YOUR SURVIVAL GUIDE TO LIFE FOLLOW @GUESTLISTDOTNET The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting happened in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018. Seventeen students and staff were killed and seventeen others were injured. The assailant was a Marjory Stoneman Douglas student and was arrested shortly after leaving the scene of the crime. She and her fellow schoolmates founded the gun control advocacy Never Again MSD, demanding legislative action making it harder to obtain a firearm in the US. They condemned law-makers who received political contributions from the NRA (National Rifle Association) including President Trump. At the anti-gun rally, the day after the mass shooting, Gonzalez's made a speech during which she chanted "We call B.S". She called out President Trump for accepting $30,000,000 from the NRA, asking, "Is that how much these people are worth to you, Trump?". After listing the victims of the shooting, Emma Gonzalez stood in silence for 6 minutes and 20 seconds - the amount of time it took for the shooter to kill the seventeen people from her school. She left everyone who watched her speechless, knowing better gun control could have prevented the loss of seventeen people. Gonzalez's ability to engage people with her words is phenomenal. Through her leadership and advocacy she has managed to encourage thousands to fight for better gun reform and to stand up against those with power and money. Gonzalez became the face of gun control and youth activism. She shaped the idea that young people are the change makers, and abolished the idea that young people didn't know anything about government and legislation. Emma Gonzalez's voice and silence rattled the world when she stood on stage at the March for Our Lives event in March, 2018. As one of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivors, Gonzalez has made it her mission to end gun violence. THE FOURTH WAVE: EMMA GONZALEZ 1. It may be harder than you think. Lot's of competition. It's hard work to set up something up yourself but that doesn't mean heading to the corporate world is easy. There's a lot of competition for that 9-5 and good salary. You might have to work a lot harder than you think to get to where you want to be and even when you've got there, you are still just another cog in the wheel. You still building somebody else's dream, working to someone else's vision. 2. Politics in the corporate office space. Who needs em? If you want to make it big in the corporate world, you best start working on your game playing. Remember it's competitive and the person next to you probably wants the same spot you're going for. 3. The robots are coming. A job for life is not the way of the future. Apparently according to Yuval Noah Harari, writer of Sapiens, life is about reinvention. You had better get used to reinventing yourself every few years. Why not start now. Because of the advances in technology and the rise of automation this generation will have to keep re- inventing themselves time and again and one of the best ways to build that kind of resilience. JOB GOALS. You may always have wanted that big job in the corporate world. The corporate world promises a steady life and a good salary, we can see how that could be appealing. But maybe the job you think you want is not the one you need. Why? FOURTH WAVE
