My Biggest Success?

I am happy to reflect on many privileges I have been lucky to have in this lifetime. If I had to choose just one, I would say that my biggest personal success would be earning my doctoral degree. While I was fortunate to be emotionally supported by my loved ones, this feat is a challenge that I endeavored on my own, with the motivations of personal growth and ability to help others in the future, and conquered that hurdle independently. While I can look back with gratitude for this achievement, I am also thankful for the obstacles I faced during that time that taught me about my personal character, mental endurance, and self-worth.

My Motto?

Perspective is power.
