My motivation to keep going is knowing that it’s not just for me. It’s a great burden and responsibility to be the first in my family to do a lot of things. But more than anything, it’s one of the greatest privileges I will ever have in my life. My life is dedicated to everyone who’s helped me get to where I am, those who sacrificed, and those who I can offer help to in the future.
A value I grew up with was to never forget where you came from
I think my greatest leadership trait is my dedication to growth. I push myself beyond my comfort zones and encourage my peers to do the same. When I fail, I try to fail fast, take the lessons along and move forward.
