“Being the best is not what’s most important in life. You’ll get nowhere beyond the rankings. Life is about failing and taking the hard road. Life is about generating experiences that are constructive. Life is about putting forth your best effort. Coming into high school, I did not have the mindset of being at the top of my class. I came in wanting to learn, grow, and leave a mark. Being the best you is what’s important in life.”
