"If I could change one thing about the world, it would be acceptance. Acceptance of others and their beliefs. I believe in absolute truth and that we should engage in serious discussion to find which course in life is right ... We must learn to always respect others and their point of view."
"If I could change one thing about the world, it would be for everyone to be themselves. It doesn't matter where you are from, we are all just a kid from somewhere. Don't hide, dont shy away, and don't be scared of your full potential - by being great you allow other people to be great."

"If you really want something, you have to work extra hard to get it. Know your own self-worth, know what you’re good at and know that the Lord has a plan. Do what you’re capable of and the Lord will take care of the rest."
"My mom always said, 'You will not always have to suffer for your faith, but you will always be called to sacrifice.' It's okay to be comfortable but it's not okay to just sit back and let things happen. You have to go out in the world, you have to be uncomfortable."
Mary Jo BetancourtPsychology
"If I could change one thing about the world, I would change the close-mindedness that we have. We need to be more open to people - their stories, their pain, and their happiness. What makes us tick doesn’t make everyone tick. What makes us happy doesn’t make everyone happy."

"The best advice I've ever received is from Professor Wayne Whaley: 'There is no hope in Engineering... solid engineering practice demands thorough analysis and exhaustive testing. Every engineering project that is based on HOPE, or the FEELINGS of the project engineering is doomed to catastrophic failure!'"

"A christian rap artist named Lecrae said, 'If you live for their acceptance, you'll die from their rejection.' That was a big thing for me because I felt like an outsider a lot and I always try to do stuff to be accepted. Just be the person God made you to be."
