Leslie Smith


My purpose of this Roadtrip is to interview people who are deemed successful and find out about their lives and their decision making process. I want to get to know how they got to where they are and what they are doing to stay there. I hope to figure out about their lives and their decisions, and also to gain some insight into my own life and my own decision making process.




Great job on your Roadtrip Project! You've been working hard, and for that we just have one thing to say...You're awesome. Keep it up!
