Experiences and challenges that shaped me

Click to expand

  • Just kept saying I wanted to do it and then found an opportunity.

  • Use education to stop the pattern.

  • I am dyslectic and just spell poorly and move along. Always use spell check even when I don't think it matters. When I can't have spell check, grin and smile through the people correcting me.
