It’s empowering to know that YOU are the creator of your future. As President Obama told a group of students in Mobile and Baldwin counties, “Your life is what you make of it.  And nothing — absolutely nothing — is beyond your reach, so long as you’re willing to dream big, so long as you’re willing to work hard.  So long as you’re willing to stay focused on your education, there is not a single thing that any of you cannot accomplish, not a single thing.”
