What is one piece of advice you might be able to offer a middle or high school student?

Don't ask yourself what you want to be when you grow up; ask yourself what you love to do (what are your passions?) and what you are good at doing (what are your talents?). Focus on how you can combine your passion and talent to become the best version of YOU that you can be. No matter what, we all end up working - and we all end up learning something after high school that helps us do our jobs better. Follow your dreams, dive in with both feet, push yourself to try new things, and doors of opportunity will open along the way.
