Encouragement for Ventures
By Jocelyn C., a High School Ventures Scholar
Hi there fellow scholars!! I would like to share with
you something very encouraging that somebody recently
said. Last week, on October 28, 2003 was the National
Honor Society Induction Ceremony at my school. I thank
God because I was selected for this society. A speaker
was invited to attend this ceremony, a native San Antonian.
He shared with us his educational background, he said
that he went to both Harvard and Stanford Universities.
He told us something really important that he learned
when he was at those prestigious schools. He said that
his classmates were not different from the people he
met when he was in high school; he said that the only
difference was that the people at those universities
had showed the determination of reaching their goals.
His speech was very encouraging, because he said that
we should not let anyone say that we are not capable
of making our dreams come true. I am pretty sure that
all the students who are reading this article have the
potential to reach their goals.
My message to you is, do not get discouraged if people
or even you think that you are not smart enough to reach
your goals, IT CAN BE DONE!! God Bless You.
