Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    Sometimes I wonder what I could have done with my career if I had been more ambitious and believed in myself. I always wondered if I could have been an engineer, but I never considered that degree program - I didn't think I could do it, so I never tried.

  • How I responded:

    I'm a work in progress. In a more leadership-facing position I'm learning to stop apologizing (particularly when a situation is not my fault or out of my control), and I'm learning to be more confident in my decisions and expectations. I want to be respected and spoken to as a peer, and the only way I can achieve that is by changing my behaviors and actions.

  • I freaked out too much. It took me a long time to learn that I can allow myself to be imperfect in this moment, and that's okay. My undergraduate GPA was a 3.32, and I was devastated. Today? It is literally meaningless to my professional success.
