Favorite Aspect of CFT
"I was drawn to the mission of Educate Texas and CFT as a whole. The fact that I get to help in a small way to improve the educational system in Texas is huge. Barriers to education need to be broken down so that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential."
"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you just don't give up."
