“Your dignity is your destiny.” Oroville Lee, former CFL player and SFU Alumni, now Youth Leader, was convincing as he described how he gained confidence and ultimately dignity as he grew up. “Reach out” and ask those around you for guidance, he says. As people see you working so hard to be a better person and achieve, they will work with you towards success. You don’t have to do this alone, is his message.
