Message to Youth

ôNever be afraid to take risks and put yourself out there. Never be afraid to open the door to do something you want to explore ľ even if you donĺt have support.ö

Last Word

ôNever doubt the change you can make. I have always put myself out there, Iĺve been afraid. Do things to learn and help others. Also, my mother used to say, ôThe only thing you take with you, when you die, is your reputation.ö
