Teenagers can accomplish anything

This 17 year old girl built an artificial brain that is able to accurately assess tissue samples for signs of breast cancer. Just amazing.

This is what I love about teens: they can do anything.

The only limitations on a teenager are his/her own. They don't know yet what can or cannot be accomplished, so they set out to do it.

And look what they can do.

Teens: Whatever you want to do in life, do it now. Whoever you want to be, be it now. Don't wait until you're older. Don't wait until you have more life experience. And above all, don't let anyone talk you out of your dreams.
