What is the best advice you’ve ever received? When I first entered college as a worried and overwhelmed freshman, I was given
advice from an older student. She told me “What is meant for you won’t pass you by.” After hearing those words, I have gone into all of life’s opportunities with vigor and hard work, but also carrying the peace with me that if it is meant to be it will happen and if not there is a different path or plan greater than the one, I could imagine for myself. God has a beautiful story written for all our futures.
