Don’t take anything personally, and lead with empathy.
The biggest learning is that asking for help or admitting that you don’t know something is a sign of strength, not weakness.
I love knowing that I am a small part of the incredible work that Imaginable Futures and its partners are doing around the world. Helping to support learners of all ages from all backgrounds is such a gift!
My mom went back to college when I was a kid, and I saw first-hand how challenging it is to juggle it all. Therefore, our work supporting student parents in their educational goals is something that really lights me up.
Nancy Drew. I loved reading the books as a kid, and I admired her strength, her ingenuity, and how she challenged society’s expectations of what girls and women could do.
As a young child, I desperately wanted to be a singer in a rock band. As I grew older and realized that my ambition exceeded my talent, I decided I wanted to be an attorney.
