Reflect and Connect
"One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest." -Maya Angelou
It takes courage to go back to school and complete your degree. How has striving to reach your educational goals made you courageous?
