Samuel Cole Education Team
Everyone thinks I’m a “girly girl” but deep down I LOVE football; especially when my favorite team (the Wolfpack) pulls out a win against the Tarheels.
My giant schnauzer puppy Chopper. We spoil him to death every chance we get.
“If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not taking risks, and that means you’re not going anywhere. The key is to make mistakes faster than the competition so that you have more chances to learn and win.” – John W. Holt, Jr.
