Try something new

"During my first semester, I was so nervous I didn't want to move, not even sneeze. But it is the single step of trying something new, sitting next to someone you don’t know or joining an organization that opens doors to growth and friendship." - Charlena Frank, Penn State Abington Student Government Association president.
