Take home message
Never be afraid to try something new
The sky is the limit
Every failure is an opportunity
Find your PASSION… and run with it!
Don’t let your interests sit silent
Love what you do follow your passion

“If we all did the things we are capable of
doing, we would literally astonish
“We never know how high we are till we
are called to rise; And then, if we are true
to plan, our statures touch the skies.”
There is beauty in experience, take the
best of what you know.
