“I’ve met some great people along the way, experienced new things and grown to spontaneous situations – but if I had let the first failure hold me back, none of this would have happened. been possible, ”Welch said. “What drove me to my last semester is that we all have this untapped potential. Someday, as I prepare to leave this earth, I don’t want my untapped potential of dreams and possibilities with me. I want to act on them now and let them grow like a tree, for others to use them someday.
