Life Advice to Students

Originally prepared for a discussion with the students of Laurel Springs (an accredited online private school with college prep programs and teacher services for students in kindergarten through 12th grade). Just a few pieces of advice I wish I knew at their age and before I got to college.

Fun fact: the program lead that invited me to speak was my very best friend growing up in Lake Tahoe. Such an honor and blast!
