Communication can be a tricky thing even when we speak the same words and language. Often times it is the background of each person that dictates understanding or lack thereof. Taking a look at personal journey to improve the ability to actually hear what someone is trying to say.

You don't need to be at the top of the social structure to make a change. Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs were just average Americans in a garage when they invented a life changing instrument… a computer. Other cases have shown that you don't need a lot of money of fame to have an idea to change the world. If you have passion and advocate yourself in your endeavors then you can reach your goals.

FBLA/Vice President
As teenagers, we seek to create an individual identity, but how do we balance that with the need to belong. Does the safety of the group provide a launching pad for personal growth and individuality? As much as we seek the liberty of having our own unique persona, maybe we are just trying to fit in. How can we be the best version of ourselves for ourselves?

Nicole Corona

FBLA/ Secretary
Often times drawing and doodling are seen as empty tasks that provide little value. As research indicates there is emotional and developmental value to a simple drawing. What can a doodle do for you?
