First Penguin

Well…First wild Morning Glory.

  
I had an art teacher who would ask for volunteers on going first for presentations. She’d call them “first penguins” because it was like the first penguin into the ocean leading the others after it, I think.

This phrase came from CMU (Carnegie Mellon University) professor Randy Pausch’s book called “The Last Lecture”. It makes sense that this teacher would quote this because he was an important mentor for her.
