“I’m not really a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Too many people “showing love” only on a certain day and fail to show the rest of the year. Now it’s also a day of friendship and I’m about that. Friendships are very important to me. I’m picky who I call a friend.”

I believe health is the single most important factor to an individuals enjoyment of life. I’ve seen some of the richest people who are the most unhappy and some of the poorest with incredible happiness. Be mindful in life, in health and in respecting others. Change is slow and takes time but the only real revolution […]

I like to talk to almost everyone I come in contact with to get a feel if there is any sense of communication left and to lift someone’s spirits. I’ve noticed just saying hi and asking how was their day really changes their energy immediately.

“I chose to volunteer in this election because I wanted to help support my candidates. I am a Democrat, so that is the party I am campaigning for. This is a pretty unique election where a lot of people have an unfavorable opinion of both sides. But it’s still important to vote because in my […]

“In my family, they’re very Catholic, so they don’t like it…In Nicaragua, if I wanted to do Halloween, I would go to a club wearing a costume. The clubs are decorated just for the week of Halloween and they have costume contests, but it’s more for older people. We don’t trick or treat, we don’t […]

“Other than giving me communication and writing skills, I don’t feel like I was that prepared for marketing and advertising as a whole. But that is also because I don’t feel like UNCC’s Marketing and Advertising department is as strong as other departments.  Take the Finance department as an example; the school puts all of […]

“At the end of the day, when life has dragged you through hell and back, just remember that everything will work itself out. Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy. Today was a bad day? Remind yourself that everyday is a new chance and don’t let it slip away. Do […]

“A college degree is like a ticket into a club of people who tried hard enough. Corporate America recognizes that it is sufficient, and in a way it displays that you’re smart enough. In my opinion, I think school is only part of the equation. You can get a piece of paper that says that somebody […]
