Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    Do you really want to spend 12 years in college? Are you sure it is something you will be passionate in?

    Be able to find something that interests you. Once you go to college and figure that out, than you are on a road to success and happiness in the future.
