Advice for LHS Students: The day you stop learning is the day you die. You can be whatever you want to be and life is what we make of it. We all make mistakes and have failures but it is how we respond to setbacks that makes all the difference. Stay positive and keep going. Our attitude is a small thing that makes a big difference. Don't ever be afraid to try new things and have the courage to be who you want to be. Travel when you can and try to see things from a different point of view. Good luck.
