No matter what kind of student one is referring to - be it athletic, academic, artistic, etc. - there is little doubt in my mind that each and every student is hard-working and dedicated to accomplish the highest degree of his or her own personal goals.
These are the type of people that should attend Marina. In addition, students should be willing to try new activities and branch out of their comfort zone. By doing this, one is free to experiment with various subjects that are not only personally enriching, but also helpful in determining a possible career. Students who attend Marina should be willing to work together, rather than consider others as competition. Ultimately, we are the future, and if we are divided, we will communicate and understand each other less and less. However, if we are united, if we come together to share ideas and support one another, we optimize our chances of having a brighter future.
