You start with a blank slate, the way you fill it is up to you... choose wisely.


Learn as much as possible about a range of topics throughout your lifetime - as learning shouldn't be tied to specific moments in time.

​​​​​​​​​Don't devalue any positive struggles toward an endpoint, because completion and success feel the same no matter the way you started.

Challenging moments help to define each of us; the choices made during these times often reflect an individual's true nature.
