My advice for students is to work hard and study hard and be involved in some type of activity or organization. Make time to mentor someone. It will make a difference not only in your life but also the life of the person you are mentoring. Finally, don't take on debt when you go to college unless you absolutely must. It takes years to pay it off.
I've always wanted to be the general manager or owner of a professional football or baseball team. I have a passion for sports and business and would love to be involved in both.
