Congratulations to Stevenson Business Communication alum Adrianna Kamosa for her well-written and insightful blog post, "What I learned from being a competitive athlete," published on her blog, Morning Muses. Adrianna's participation with her sisters in four sports through her lifetime has taught her significant life lessons, including how to anticipate the good and bad in life. Thanks, Adrianna, for sharing these thoughts.
