What would you tell yourself at age 18?
At 18, I would tell myself to take electives that have nothing to do with my major, do a semester abroad, save money and to enjoy every step of the journey. I would be comfortable with letting go of relationships that aren't healthy and invest more in relationships that last a lifetime. I would learn more about other cultures and take some computer programming classes. Finally, I would eat far less PIZZA. LOL!

How has ACS Scholars impacted your life and career?
