Luis offers this advice to future students, “Your only competition is you. The only thing you can control is you, so do not waste too much energy on things out of your control. If you are unsure of what is next, that is perfectly fine because being lost brings curiosity and new opportunities, and that is a beautiful thing. No does not always mean no, many of the times it just means not yet.”
