"If I could offer any advice to students," says Precious, "I would recommend that you make and take the time to focus on your education. There are so many things requiring our attention on a daily basis and it can be very easy to shift priorities. I see life as both tactical and strategic. While the tactical decisions we make have an immediate impact, it's important to never lose focus on the long-term strategy."
