When your best isn’t good enough – Duke Chronicle

In high school, I wrote essay conclusions on the bus and came to class ten minutes late because I still had to print the essay out. It was so defeating to know that I had been careful and made good decisions, and still had so much work to do that I didn’t have the time to just sit outside and talk with my friends. I have to volunteer as a debate coach because I think everyone should have the opportunity to do debate and doing this work might help me get the job that I want this summer.
