MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- American swimmer and Olympic medalist Cody Miller inspired students at Hommocks Middle School on Friday, sharing some golden tips on setting goals, working hard and attaining dreams.

Among the insights offered by Miller:

"Everyone has a gift, and you can find that gift,"

Miller said. "Work harder then everyone else to achieve your dreams."

And, "focus is the key to learning, sports and achieving your goals," Miller added. "You don't have to be big. You have to be fierce and work really hard."

Later in the day, Miller visited Murray Avenue School, where an assembly of students in grades three through five gathered to hear him speak and ask questions. The day was full of many valuable messages, according to Mamaroneck School District spokeswoman Debbie Manetta. "Messages that clearly resonated with so many of our students," she added.

The U.S. Olympian's visit was made possible by the Badger Swim Club, which Miller has been affiliated with.
