Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;

indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

~ Margaret Mead


You don’t have to be the fastest runner in the relay team or the best speaker on the debate panel,

as long as you surround yourself with great people and contribute in your own way.

However I learned that if i flanked myself with people that complemented my weaknesses and shared my passions,

I could work with them towards greater achievement...
