 "Reach for the Stars, You never know what you're gonna get."

Did you ever have an idea? You know this great idea, and then you thought to yourself, No, I can't do that.  It'll cost too much money! I won't have enough time, there will be too many problems.  Forget about it!  Just forget about it!

"Well, I'm here to tell you that you can do it, but you can't do it alone." 

With a blend of passion, magic and humor, Scott Didra will tell stories through examples of how he overcame many obstacles in education to continue to pursue his dreams for his architectural students. One of his famous quotes, "don't think you can't do something just because you think you can't" will inspire you to follow your dreams and do the things you always wanted to do.  "You have to reach for the stars, you never know what you're gonna get?"
