TENLEY LEHMAN, from pg. 11 Medical School and later a successful surgeon. I have admired First Lady Michele Obama's commitment to the continued education of youth, a healthy lifestyle and our armed forces. I was honored to hear the First Lady speak to kick off SXSW music fest and felt empowered by her message of hope. She said that "to whom much is given, much is expected."

Rowling has helped make the world a better place, not only through her writing, but actions. She presented the opportunity for countless readers to pick up a book and read for pleasure, not requirement.

As I reflected on major news events, both domestically and internationally over the past four years, I found overwhelming negativity.

From cells that might cure diabetes, to the rising number of college graduates and everyday technology rapidly evolving, soon my generation will be behind it all. What would you change about the United States today if you could? I would stop the political vitriol and regain the art of compromise. I wish the United States could truly live up to its original purpose as the melting pot and the land of freedom. What's the best advice you have ever received, and from whom? "The greatest moments in your life often occur outside of your comfort zone." This advice has inspired me to constantly improve myself so I may help others do the same. This was told to me by a former Lehman High School Drum Major and mentor, Sarah Williams. Share a piece of your advice with future graduating classes. Step out of your comfort zone and do not be afraid to fail. Believe in something and believe in yourself. Most importanly, remember to give back.
