Heard on Campus: Motivational speaker K. B. Strawder

"In the race of this thing called life, it's not about image. It's about completing YOUR race. What is it that you're attaining that YOU really, really want to accomplish? Do it and do it FOR YOU and you only, nobody else. … In order to achieve true success, it starts with you. If you can't achieve success in taking care of yourself, how do you expect to be successful in any area of your life? If you don't take care of you, how are you going to take care of somebody else? … Taking care of you is always first and foremost a priority in your life. … You have to be in the right mental state and you have to be in the right self-care state, to deal with whatever you want to deal with in your heart." — Motivational speaker K.B. Strawder Jr., speaking on "Success and Self-Care: Taking Care of You." Strawder's talk to students in the College of Education was prompted by Diandra Prescod, assistant professor of education, who saw that her students were experiencing a lot of stress and wanted to do something to help them.
