When he faced failure

We all face failure, even he did but learnt from it and stood up inspired. When in the first year, he achieved a 0.59 GPA and was required to withdraw from the Biochemistry program. He was told by the Dean, “maybe the college isn’t right for him”. He considered his failures beginnings rather than endings. From then onwards he decided to never look back and complete his studies.

Meaning of life to him

His grandmother once told him, “Zachery, people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” From then his purpose of life has been exploring the world, discovering passions and using experience to help others.” I think life is not about you or me, life is about the footprint we leave in bettering the lives of others.” , Zachery remarked.
