WATCH Martellus Bennett speaks at Forbes Under 30 Summit
Martellus Bennett talks about feeling like a Transformer when playing football and his imagination at Forbes Under 30 Summit
Martellus Bennett is more than just a New England Patriots tight end.
He's a thinker, pusher of boundaries, embraces his inner child and isn't afraid to speak his mind.
On Tuesday, Bennett spoke at the Forbes Under 30 Summit at Faneuil Hall about a variety of things ranging from a time his 10 year old self told a parent at career day their job sucked, his imagination and how he feels like a Transformer when he's on the football field.
The Pro Bowl tight end's inspiration took a jolt when his daughter was born and with her birth brought to life the Imagination Agency which has produced a children's book and short film.
But that imagination has always been there for Bennett.
The moral of his talk at the Summit revolved around being who you want to be, asking yourself what you want to be when you grow up.
“I grew up wanting to be Tim Burton and Randy Moss, Michael Jordan and Dr. Seuss, Larry Bird and Professor Dumbledore, Deion Sanders and Willy Wonka,” Bennett said via the Boston Herald. “I want to become the black Walt Disney.”
Bennett implored the Summit goers to ask themselves what they want to be, let your imagination take shape and achieve it.
