What's the best piece of advice your mom ever gave you?
One day I came back from school (I was 8) very upset because I thought my teacher could not understand me. She told me, learn as much as you can from the teachers you have and never mind if they don't understand you. You will move on, you will go ahead with your studies, so the only thing that matters is how much you will learn and carry with you into the future. I have now a PhD and a job in academia.
