* What do you think is the biggest problem facing youth today?
"I believe the biggest problem facing youth today is the lack of motivation. Many find it hard to pursue goals when they see no reason to. The youth today are content with reaching their minimum potential instead of setting the bar higher as they go. My advice to our generation is to see the world that is out there and make the best of every experience. With these tools, our duty is to make our elders proud and inspire those of an even younger generation to step forward."
