Don't take life too seriously! Sometimes you'll get good grades, sometimes you won't. Just focus on learning and you'll look back and be proud of yourself.

How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?

At BYU I gained a greater understanding of the world and how complex and awesome it is in every aspect. Moving forward, I have a greater desire to explore + understand it!
