Princeton University graduate Matthew Marquardt ’21 is bound for the Ohio State College of Medicine with a renewed appreciation for his own resilience. “I’ve learned that I have incredible perseverance and grit to push through challenges and accomplish my goals,” explains Matthew, a future orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon. “I’ve also learned that there are often significant factors outside of my control that influence my life’s trajectory. As a result, I now focus on incorporating reflection and gratitude into my life to ensure that I’m moving in the right direction.”
