Thoughts on E010

I’m a “college isn’t for everybody” guy; but I gained some perspective of why it’s important to try it out IF you know what you’re trying to do in life. That perspective was having a voice in the room to speak on your behalf; or a representative to share ideas that other may not be able to see. Hopefully the butterfly effect of those actions have strong(er) repercussions for us as a people.
