What advice would you give current students?

“I know it sounds cliché, but no matter how hard things may seem at the moment, you should always know that there is someone out there who has it worse than you do and that should be your motivation while trying to achieve your goals. There will be obstacles. There will be hardship, but when those times come around, focus on where you want to be in life and make that your motivation to continue working hard. Also be versatile and be teachable.”
