Advice for High School Students: Everyone has something to contribute. I discovered my strengths in college and built the confidence to use these strengths. Take advantage of this during your college experience. It is not just a degree or piece of paper, it’s a life journey that can make you grow beyond the capacity that you thought you had inside yourself.
