Favorite Aspect of CFT
"We need to ensure our kids are equipped to conquer the world. A solid education is what prepares them for college and career success. Everyday, we get a chance to impact low-income, first generation kids by providing them with the solid footing they need to achieve anything they want."
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."
