Guy Fieri: on college students, GM cars and hockey! U Magazine interviewed Guy Fieri recently for a cover story. Guy shares his life's journey, and offers advice for students.

Click here to read; Guy's interview begins on page 18. A few of Guy's quotes from the article:

"I was never pushed to do anything, encouraged to do everything."

"Anything is SO possible in today's day and age. I see success story after success story. Things aren't just going to fall into your lap. You've got to go out there and get it."

"Look to people you admire or that intrest you. Look to your teachers, your community and businesses. Find people you want to be like and ask them to help you. Say to them, 'Mentor me. Give me a shot. Help me out. Send me a direction.'"

"The Faces of GM" recently ran a story on Guy Fieri, The Chef and his Chevy's, catching up with him at the Woodward Dream Cruise in metro-Detroit this past August.

They wrote, "It’s clear that Guy is passionate about two things – cooking and cars. In fact, he’s seen with his 1967 red Camaro in just about every episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network. He had the red Camaro with him, along with a yellow 2011 Camaro SS, at the 555 Triangle in Birmingham this August – and even has eight more GM cars at home!"

GM also asked Guy how he developed this passion for the bowtie brand, and he said, "Chevy’s always led the way. The way it looks, the way it all ties together. Chevy’s always just been the coolest."
