Class of 2014

It is an understatement to say that life is unpredictable. Some days you feel like the luckiest person on Earth; being blessed with family, friends, an education, and a future with numerous possibilities. Other times you can’t wait until the day is over. Along with all those ups and downs, lies something powerful – choices. As silly as it sounds, you consciously and subconsciously make dozens of choices daily that makes you who you are. It is important to realize that your choices not only reflect who you are today, but who you will become tomorrow. This realization has shown me that I have the power to direct my life and who I want to be through my choices. I have the power to make my “can’ts” into “cans” and I have the power to make my dreams into plans. I am the director of my life.
