Journal 2 by Seth W.
Hello, I'm Seth Wicker. I was born in Bradenton, Florida but I was raised in Columbus since I was 2 months old after my family of six moved here for my father's job. I am studying Industrial Design here at THE Ohio State University, this is my second year in Marion and I will be switching to main campus in spring. Outside of school I work at Costco Wholesale and enjoy photography and drawing.
As I read the three profiles in Holding On the story that stood out the most to me was the second story about Lawrence "Happy" Davis the Pullman Porter. The reason this story stood out to me was because Mr. Davis didn't focus on the work that he had to do as a pullman, but he looked at the opportunities it created in his life. Instead of focusing on the less glamorous aspects of his job Davis found joy in the fact that he was able to explore the United States, an opportunity that wasn't typically available to individuals in his social and economic class. He saw his job as an opportunity rather than a chore which is an inspiring attribute that I believe should be recognized.
