Grammy-nominated songstress Elle Varner recalls how her dad’s strict academic standards helped her achieve success. “To him, a B was not good. He told me, ‘A B is average. Are you average?’ So when I had to tell him I got a D in math, it was pretty much the worst summer of my life,” she confesses to Teen Diaries Radio host Aeshia Branch. “But I got through it and I never did that again.  My advice is to really take high school seriously, especially if you want to move on professionally. And if you need help, don’t be afraid to ask your parents. That’s what they’re there for.”
