“Success is not a straight line. You plan to go straight, but in reality, there are dips, dives, twists, turns, and obstacles that might get in your way. But when you can develop skills and you have things that nobody can take away from you, today there’s opportunity to do something and build something for yourself.”

- Marlowe Stoudamire, Social Capital Expert
