Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Teachers:

    You should go to business school

  • How I responded:

    I did what was right, easy for me at that time and what I wanted. I put my "fun" life before my "school" life. Probably not what was the "right" thing to do but in the end I'm as successful as I want to be right now.
