“Some of you may plan on becoming a teacher, becoming a soldier, becoming a mechanic, [or] becoming a medical professional. But whatever path you decide to follow, be kind to yourself as you make mistakes. When you stumble, know that no failure or setback is insurmountable. When you try new things, feel the fear or the anxiety and then go after your dreams. When you fail, take the time to be sad, but do not dwell on your mistakes. Life can be heavy if you carry it all at once. Decide what to keep and what to let go. Know that your failures do not define what you are capable of, instead see them as proof that you are trying and opportunities to learn.” ~ Rebekah Boitey, Valedictorian
