QUOTE OF THE WEEK
 
“My first lesson is to be really enthusiastic for asking for things. My second lesson is even if someone tells you 'no,' just politely say, 'I’m desperate to be here,' and my third lesson is, wherever you are, be the person who works the hardest in the room to get what you want.”

--Melissa Richmond, vice president of Running Start, on Young Women Leadership Program
