Malcolm X reminds us that “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” In this vein, always remember that if you want to get started but you are feeling overwhelmed, take a deep breath and a small step forward. The journey of a lifetime does begin with a single step!
