Setting a Goal

by Edgar Kosgey '10

"In life there are so many challenges but provided you work hard, you stick to your path, you have a goal, you have a drive to achieve that goal - I think it’s achievable. There’s always going to be ups and downs …for those that get affected by that, there are going to be very difficult times but stay on your course, think positive, be positive, and then ask for help."
