What surprised you about life after high school?
Especially after college for me, I found life to be truly a blank slate. It is up to each person to live how they’d like to, but learn to live with the consequences!

Any advice for future bearcats?
I have lots of advice, but it’s hard to tell what would be most helpful. It depends on the person! I would say: Take a step back from your own life once in a while. Evaluate where you are or what you’re doing, and accept constructive feedback from yourself or others. Then, dive back into your world 100%, make the changes you need to chase your dreams, and be sure to help others along the way. Don’t be afraid to fail sometimes too!
Of course I also have to say… Wear orange every Friday!
