Ricky in Warren, RI

As the oldest of 3 children, there’s a much greater pressure on me to succeed. And that means going to college. I had quite the fiasco these past 4 years, trying to keep my grades up while still enjoying the extracurricular (Select Choir, Jazz Choir, and an a-cappella group), that I almost got myself physically ill and incapable. So my advice (and I’m bad at this, but here goes): Work hard, but not too hard that you drain yourself. Have fun. Loosen up. Success will not even attempt to enter a closed mind or heart.
