“I’ve learned a few lessons since my days at Hope High.
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is ‘NO EXCUSES’!
Everyone has problems in life. I’ve had many. But, companies don’t care. Colleges don’t care; well, colleges will feel sorry for your personal problems but they will not admit you to their college because of your problems. Colleges only accept students they’re convinced will be successful students, who will contribute to their campus community by making their college more diverse with students of different interests, talents, and ethnic perspectives and, in the process, a great place for all students to work hard to become the best they can be. As far as companies, they too look to hire people who convince them they’ll be successful getting their jobs done well, on time, all the time, and, as a result, make their companies more profitable.
What really matters in life is how you deal with your problems and setbacks and, in the process, you become a stronger and wiser person.”
