I live my life with empathy, compassion, and understanding. I apply those same principles in my daily responsibilities when working with our Medaille community.
Social justice issues.
Own up to your faults and mistakes. We all have them and make them. It's how you learn from those instances that make you the person that you will become as an adult.
Create for yourself the best college experience possible for you, no matter what that looks like. At the same time, though, don't forget to take time for yourself to regroup and reenergize. Especially after a big test, paper, or demanding project, it's as important to take care of your own self-care as it is to focus on your studies.
