Today’s host was Josiah Diaz,

“I didn’t let my humble beginnings in Central Falls and attending a school with a terrible brand like Central Falls High School prevent me from being the person I wanted to be.
I believe success is a choice. While most of my high school friends were only applying to Rhode Island College and URI, I wanted to start my own business so I decided to push out of my comfort zone and apply to a great, private, business school where a lot of students from wealthy families were going, Bryant University. I asked for a scholarship to help me afford the tuition at Bryant. They gave me a significant scholarship. But, it wasn’t enough. So, I took out a loan and then got a job while I was enrolled at Bryant to pay for the rest. I worked hard at Bryant to earn my business degree that got me closer to my entrepreneurial goal. “
