"As an El Segundo High School student, you are subjected to more advice than at any other time in your life.  Parents, relatives, friends, peers, educators, and assorted third parties will all bombard you with suggestions and directions - usually each imparting a little knowledge.  Grab all the knowledge you can get - explore it, consider it, test it - give it all a chance.  When something strikes you as exciting, challenging and most importantly, something you thoroughly enjoy - get involved!  Give a Damn!   And really go for it!  Chances are you have found the work which will be best for you."
