Jeremy Cai: "I'm a pretty dumb guy with a voice that - for whatever reason - people happen to find smart."

Prahasith Veluvolu: "You're going to get a million reasons for why your idea isn't going to work. Don't listen to that bullshit, what matters is if you think you can. Stop ideating, start executing and kill it :)"

William Zhou: "Go travel. It'll shape your world view and give you perspectives. Learning different cultures will teach you what makes us human. It will help you focus on what really matters in life, be it work or personal."

Michael Lisovestky: "Experiential learning is exponential. Start doing ASAP, because the more that you experience early, the faster you'll grow as an individual."

Cathy Tie: "Fight the good fight."

Stacey Ferreira: "People always ask me how to balance work and life as an entrepreneur. The answer is to only take a leap into entrepreneurship with a project that is worth unbalancing your life for."

Brian Wong: "You can take some of what is perceived to be your biggest weaknesses and pull a jedi-mind trick and turn them into your biggest strengths."

Caroline Beckman: “One with experience is never at the expense of one with an opinion.”

Eden Full Goh: "Passion prevails."

Hunter Rosenblume: "The best decision I ever made as an entrepreneur was to drown out the noise and find focus."

Ocean Pleasant: "I believe the most effective way to mobilize millennials for social change is to catalyze personal connection around the issues that get us fired up: human rights, animal welfare, the environment. We're seeing a demand for systemic change and transparency, an urgency for justice for all people and the planet. This drives me every single day; the possibility that I can play a role in mobilizing my generation and impacting positive change in the world. With the Real mobile platform, our mission is simple: help young people meet new friends and make an impact."

Xavier Di Petta: "It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste” - Henry Ford
