Who has provided the most positive influence on your development as a leader?

My mom. I have learned to go the extra mile from her example, even when it’s hard. My mom has taught me to be grateful for who I am today and keep working towards who I’ll become tomorrow. She has influenced me to persevere through obstacles and continue to smile when it feels like the world is against you. Her selflessness and drive to help others inspires me, and my leadership style, every day.

What’s one quote that has impacted your outlook on leadership and life?

“Don’t adapt to the energy in the room. Influence the energy in the room.”

This quote describes my personality outlook on leadership and life. I make the best of every situation, regardless of circumstances. Especially given the past year, it is important to not allow others’ energy to bring you down. It is more important to stay true to yourself even when the energy in the room is quiet or sad. Moreover, as a leader you must drive the energy in the room to be productive and progressive. My outlook on life is to always stay true to yourself, even when the world is going against you. I am passionate about driving change and bringing people together, both of which are central to my leadership style.
