Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    You do not fit the mold of success. People with your background come in 2nd.

  • How I responded:

    I had a chip on my shoulder that created a work ethic and determination to overcome whatever it took to win. I was ok with working harder and longer than others because I knew who I wanted to prove wrong and/or what I wanted to obtain.
