Dextral

Kaden J. Cochran
Class of 2014
Political Science

Dextral means "to the right" and it applies to my life in three ways. The simplest way is that I am right-handed. Second is my political views. This does not mean I am close-minded, but my Christian faith and my upbringing have a huge impact on my views. The third is simply doing the right thing. This, to me, means doing the honest action no matter what the cause. "Confidence doesn't come with immediate success, that is arrogance. Confidence comes with failed attempts that eventually transform into mediocrity and over time it is accomplished." So when you do the right thing don't expect credit, do it without expecting anything in return.
