JustinBouvier4952.jpg

The 35-year-old Bristol native has built a career out of helping young people — especially those who struggle the most.

But what most teens roaming the halls of MAUHS might not realize is that Bouvier’s own path to success wasn’t always clear or certain.

BRISTOL — Margaret Owen has kept track of the things she’s heard over her 90 years on this Earth.

Some of them are filled with wisdom, some of them are a little silly. Many of them can make you stop and think.

1. Comb your hair in the dark, you’ll comb sorrow into your heart.

2. Clean hair out of your comb and burn it, or you could lose all your hair.
