Listening to a speech

Randy Pausch was an American professor who sadly passed away in 2008.

He was an extremely inspirational person, and through this video is very emotional I hope it will remind you of what is important in life.

Listen to the interview and try and fill in the gaps in the sentences.

I strongly recommend his lecture, ‘achieving your childhood dream’, which you can also find on youtube.
