What philosophy guides your education? “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today; and earn your success based on service to others, not at the expense of others.” – H. Jackson Brown, Jr. Fundamentally, I believe that the essence of learning and education is to be of service to others, and the more I learn, the better I will be able to contribute to society.
