What educational advice would you give to students? One piece of educational advice would be to always keep going towards your passion. When things go wrong find a way to make it work. Education is about figuring it out. Go towards your passion because it will make a huge difference in your happiness. "Keep going towards your passion." What is the biggest educational challenge you have faced? The biggest challenge I had to overcome as it relates to my educational pathway would probably be financing. I believe this is an issue for most college students. I left my first university where I had the opportunity to contract with the ROTC program to attend another university that had a wrestling program at a higher level. My first school was extremely expensive and that ROTC scholarship would have made it nothing. But, I had a passion and pursued it, and wrestling ended up subsidizing my undergraduate and master's degree tremendously. "Keep going and figure it out."
