Career Advice: “The biggest lesson I have learned so far is, do what you love and are passionate about because that’s when you would be able to give your 100%. If you give your best, you don’t have to worry about success because it comes to you automatically. Life is too short to waste on something that doesn’t make you excited or happy!”

Career Advice: “Try your hardest, but don’t beat yourself up when you fail. As long as you have the right mindset and embrace all that you are, (your strengths, passions, flaws) you’re unstoppable. Success is a marathon, not a sprint.”

Career Advice:“Learn how to network as a freshman or sophomore – don’t wait until junior/senior year! Getting used to phone calls, emails, and in-person conversations with professionals takes time. By senior year when you’re relying on your network to help find job opportunities, you’ll be thankful for all of the practice you had.”
