Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Teachers:

    You should stay away from places where math is used daily. Avoid conflict at all costs.

  • How I responded:

    Don't be afraid to take on what scares you- now I use numbers on a daily basis, and problem solve all of the time. I have to constantly get people to work together, and often serve as a referee and cheerleader. My diplomacy skills are used daily.
