Don't Suck

I'm really excited to have the opportunity to present for a group of Upward Bound students at UCSD today. What makes it especially special is that they are from the Imperial Valley. 50 high school students spending several weeks of their summer to invest in themselves academically. You gotta love it. My presentation will consist of a reading and a few shared experiences from my days in the college classroom. I hope it goes over well. In times like these, I can't help but remember Gysee-Yo's sage advice to herself, which really is a two word life philosopy: "Don't suck." She mentioned this to an audience at the Tucson Poetry Festival last year. She's amazing!
