I was an average student until I read one book - "The Black Hole War" by Leonard Susskind. It changed my perception of the universe and inspired me to achieve!
Since then I have studied physics and math at Appalachian State University, worked with NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab on the Mars 2020 Rover, and travelled extensively.
There are wonderful things to learn out there. Sometimes a little inspiration is all we need to fall in love with a new subject, or simply to pass a class. I hope to provide that inspiration and assistance to others in the same way that Leonard Susskind did for me years ago.
