Since I was a young kid, my mother and father told me that nothing is ever given to you and everything is earned. Even if you fail at something initially, failure is the best teacher and motivator towards your eventual goal of success. That advice has applied to so much of my life and dealing with adversity and things that didn't necessarily go my way and that's made me hungrier in striving for the very best that I can deliver for everything that I approach in my life. From writing about sports for my high school people to writing about Ohio State sports in college, the relationships that I have built with my colleagues and sources, as well as players and coaches, is an experience that I will cherish. I certainly hope to strengthen those relationships while being new ones in my next endeavor, wherever that may be.
