First and foremost, I would like to thank Ms. Dove, Ms. Shepard, Mr. Rodriguez and Ms. Susan…

My WOW moment was watching others walk away…

Thomas Edison said, “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

Do not wait; the time will never be “just right.” Start where you stand and work with whatever tools you may have at your command and better tools will be found as you go along.

Believe in yourself. Be confident in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.

Do the one thing you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never fail are those who never try. This is your moment. Own it.

And once again, thank you to the entire TE staff for taking time out of their lives to help us get to ours.
