Good advice for students, including STEM students, is:
Work hard and learn as much as you can in school and college. Take advantage of programs that can aid you in furthering your knowledge and career in STEM. I firmly believe in the saying that if at first you don’t succeed, keep trying until you do. Never give up on your goals.
