Be ambitious. I think a lot of what's happening is the field is really dynamic; it's changing really, really rapidly. There's a lot of good work that can be done. And I think that anybody who's entering the field is most likely doing it from their heart. So, I just say, be adaptable, because the impact of HIV on the community is probably going to be different than what it'll be in five years, in 10 years, in 20 years. Be open to change while realizing that it may not happen overnight.
