Often in life we find ourselves just trying to survive and make it through the day. It's important however, especially as students, to make the time to prepare for and shape our future.

Success starts with having clear vision. In this session, you will learn the meaning and importance of acquiring vision, and how to define and visualize your dreams and goals. You'll leave this inspiring workshop with a sharper picture of what you want, how to get it, and new tools for success.
