After delving into the intricacies of the performing arts, Connor discussed crucial attributes essential for success in any profession: passion, quick thinking and an ability to adapt, and playing to one's unique strengths. Students walked away with a few memorable quotes from Connor Sullivan, including, "Adaptability is the biggest super power you can have in life" and "You don't have to be good at something to say, I love that."
