I have had a fantastic two years as a part of Upward Bound. I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such an outstanding group of young people. I hope I was able to have some small, positive impact in all of your lives. All of you have certainly impacted mine.
Set your goals high. You are capable of more than you realize.
Get outside of your comfort zone, and travel the world. There is so much on our planet worth seeing. The people and cultures you encounter will open your eyes to so much.
Strive for greatness.
Do well in all that you do. Do good in all that you do. There’s a difference!
Give yourself the chance to find out who you really are.
I wish you all the best in life. You deserve it.
