Advice for Life After Undergrad…

“My best advice I can give, post-grad, is to always explore. My personal motto has always been “explore your world.” It’s even on my TCU brick and engraved inside my TCU class ring. With no promise of tomorrow, we have to always try new things, have new experiences and gain new experiences. You don’t want to regret having not done something with the little time we have here on earth. Like I said, time goes on with or without you. You don’t want to be on your deathbed and say, “I wish I tried to do x, y or z.” So always explore and try new things!”
