Award-winning journalist Anderson Cooper captivated a College Park Center audience this spring with his humility, humor, and sincerity as part of the Maverick Speakers Series. The CNN anchor stressed the importance of being genuine. “Don’t pretend to know things you don’t know or to be someone you aren’t,” he said. “When you get to a point where you think you know everything, that’s a mistake.” He added that the best advice he ever received was to out-hustle everyone around him no matter the job. Krys Boyd of KERA-FM’s Think talk show moderated the program. Watch a video at uta.edu/maverickspeakers.
