"Don't give up, it sounds really simple but I remember my mom telling me this as I was learning math in school or even playing tennis or dance. Sometimes things are hard, but you don't stop or give up. That goes for not just succeeding in a particular class but also in your career. Imagine yourself doing something that no one else has ever done before or that other people don't think you can do, but if you have faith in yourself and confidence in yourself and work really hard and don't give up you can succeed."
