“As Notre Dame Hounds and students, we were taught to “Never Lose Heart,” and this attitude really helped us overcome obstacles and reach our goals. We trained hard every day, we learned to be independent and live on our own. We learned how to be responsible for ourselves and balance homework, school and friends. This all really prepares you for life and for adversity when it comes.” – Mandi Schwartz, 2010
