People of Central

On the hardest lesson of his college experience:

“I skated by in high school. I had an accelerated education overseas, came back, finished my last three years in American public high school, and quite honestly I skated by without doing a damn thing. I came here and had to learn how to study, learn how to manage my time and learned that just showing up to class is not an acceptable thing to do.”

Charles Li, 22, Troy, MI.
