Out of all the cities I have been to, my speaking engagement today will be the most eye opening for me.

I always jump at any opportunity to help students in any way I can. When they asked me if I’d like to be a part of their Student Day, I didn’t even hesitate.

It will be a
nerve wracking super fun day.
