    Motto or message to classmates:  “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl -In life, we often forget that we have the ability to control our own narrative. We may be handed similar plot devices or follow similar directions but truthfully, no one else can write, direct, or produce your story. We, the Class of 2020, are now faced with a multitude of choices and we must remind ourselves, and the world, of who we are. Although COVID-19 has altered our lives, we must not let it dictate our futures. We choose how we react--how we take back our stories.

    Motto or message to classmates: In the 2007 Academy Award-winning film Ratatouille, the audience is reminded of a few universal truths: 1. Teamwork makes the dream work, 2. Anyone can cook (or as Anton Ego realized "Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere"), and 3. Food is awesome.
