‎”And basically I have one message to all. Hang Tough. And I mean by saying Hanging Tough, do your best every day. Whether it’s in school or at your job or wherever you are. Do your best every day. You don’t have to know all the answers, no way, don’t expect that of yourself, just do your best. Satisfy yourself, so at the end of the day, you can look in the mirror, after you’ve brushed your teeth, and say honestly to yourself, today I did my best. And if you do that you’re being honest and everything is going to be okay.”
