College Athlete Dealing with the Loss of a Friend

Jessica Iwata is a student-athlete at the University of Hawaii. She dealt with the loss of a close friend who was in a car accident due to drunk driving.

During her time of grieving, she was in shock and hurt. She then reached out to her friends and they turned to God for support. Having faith gives you a different perspective on life. Do not take life for granted and though we all make mistakes, do your best to make the right choices that will help people and not hurt people. 

Her faith is what gives Jessica The Real Winning Edge!
