Alicia's Tips for Future Seahawks

  1. Follow YOUR dreams. If it doesn't make you happy, it never will. College is about discovering your passion. At the end of the day, you have to do it for you.
  2. What's meant for you will be for you. Don't compare your level of success to anyone else's; that's more stress than you need.
  3. If you need help, ASK. Stop thinking you're supposed to have it together; at some point, none of us had it together.
  4. Don't take life so seriously. Education is important, but don't get to your last year and not have any great memories or great people to share those memories with.
  5. Be open. People will have different views from you, learn how to tolerate them. You may learn something truly amazing.
