Message to the students of today:
Never Give Up! Set goals at the beginning of college. Map them out for what you want to accomplish 1 year, 3 years, and 5 years down the road. Hold yourself accountable to them, and you can achieve anything. If life throws a road block at you, don’t give up. Continue to work at, and you will be successful.
