Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Teachers:

    I was originally told that I wouldn’t be able to get accepted into GSU and that I shouldn’t consider going there.

  • How I responded:

    If I would have listened to my guidance counselor’s advice, I would have never gotten into the school of my dreams. My advice to you is take a chance on yourself even when others doubt you. The end results could work in your favor even if the odds are against you.
