Don't ever let somebody tell you you can't do something... You got a DREAM. You gotta PROTECT IT. People can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want something, GO GET IT. Period.

What is your story?

To this point I have pictured life as only black and white (right and wrong) However, I have learned to add some color into my life and to think outside of the box. It is okay to fail and to quit. Previously I viewed failures as a negative but now I can view it as a positive light in my life and an opportunity to learn from them. Currently I have changed my major and I am now seeing different opportunities and goals in life.

Who is your entrepreneurial inspiration OR biggest hero?

If your story were made into a movie, what actor/actress would portray you and why?

What advice would you give to a student starting their entrepreneurial journey?

I would tell them to step off the side lines and get into the game. When standing on the sidelines you are just a bystander. You watch the game of life instead of playing the game. Get up and get into the action. Go for your dream and get the goal that you have always envisioned.
