What helped you succeed in college? I was struggling because of personal and financial issues happening in my family. I had to work and go to school. There was a professor I had who encouraged me not to quit and who helped me get some additional funding so I could finish. When I was lost and thought I was all alone, I found out there were many people rooting for me to succeed.

What was your undergraduate major? Mathematics, Economics, and Statistics
What helped you succeed in college? Scheduling every activity I had really helped me organize my life and manage my time wisely. I tried my best to be realisitics with how much time I needed to study and fit fun activities around my work and study schedule. This strategy really helped me to minimize procerastination, which had been the source of so much of my anxiety early in college. 
What advice would you give students? Focus on learning, not just on grades. If you are able to focus on gaining a deep understanding of the material, retaining what you learn, and being able to communicate those concepts and ideas to classmates, the good grades will follow. Having that unrelenting desire to master everything you do will give you the knowedge and skills to truly be successful.
