Samson Education Trust Fund is pleased to share on the student success of Lori Buffalo whom is a recent high school graduate.
Lori’s advice to youth is: “The biggest challenge I had were the ones I created in my mind. The main reason I dropped out of school and even giving up on education was that I was terrible at Math… I let numbers convince me I was dumb. So I walked away from my education for 12 years… You need to pace yourself. Plan accordingly to your studies. Three years just to get my diploma seemed like a daunting task and I wasn’t sure if I would ever finish but here I am, graduating! Being successful is that it’s not for just a special, select few that are chosen. Being successful is within every single one of us. Not everyone will see the vision you have for yourself, not everyone will join you, it’s important to know that. t’s important that you surround yourself with people that have the same goals in mind, who get up at 6am to start their day, who study hard and create their own paths. surround yourself with people who are hungry for success, who are unstoppable and unreasonable when it comes to getting what they want and who really believe that no matter what, they’re going to make it. The people that are living their dreams are the people who know that if it’s going to happen it’s up to them. You really do have to find your value and invest in you. Invest in your mind!”
