Hey Everyone,

“It is only the first step that is difficult”. The thousandth step is said to be the best but to get to that step, you must have to defeat the obstacles and challenges on the way to that thousandth step. The steps principle could be applied to anything and almost every situation. For instance, if you’re a student, your thousandth step for school would be making friends, graduating, and getting a high paying job. For AGC FIU, our thousandth step is to be able to help as many students as we can to achieve their thousandth step. Our doors are always open to everyone that’s willing to do what it takes to get to that thousandth step. We know the first step is the hardest, so that’s why we are here, because as a team, we grow FASTER and STRONGER!!!
