It is agreed by many that school is considered one of the hardest experiences the average teenager tackles. The drama, the sleepless nights, the grueling workload, and above all, the sheer amount of learning that occurs.

Quint Gfroerer plans on studying hard and getting into a good profession so that he can help others in need with the help of science and math. His main goals in life is to be successful, live a good life, and to make himself and others happy. And with guidelines to success like that, who needs luck?
