Student gives it his all, no matter what
Student Chris Burger has found that putting forth his best efforts yields the most rewarding results.
“I give 100 percent, 100 percent of the time,” he said. “It’s important -- you never know who’s watching. But really, that doesn’t matter, I make sure I’m doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching. For example, I try to be enthusiastic when it’s hot, and practice has been long and hard. I give all my effort. I’d definitely say it makes a difference in the people around me.”
