After inspiring Specialist Sports students to set goals at the beginning of the year, talent-builder Mark ‘Dobbo’ Dobson returned to BSSC on Monday for a follow-up session and a chance for students to brainstorm strategies for success.

“We all start a new year with optimism,” Dobbo said. “Some of us build momentum, some of us lose momentum, and some of us crash, but there are always strategies for recovery.”

Dobbo challenged students to step out of their comfort zones, find their own path to success, and “not be like sheep” among their peers.

“Don’t let anyone make you feel uncomfortable for excelling,” he said. “Carry your ‘character’ with you… and surround yourself with things that spark joy.”
