Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    You don't have the skillset to achieve the career goals you have

  • How I responded:

    Practice makes perfect. Individual development is an ongoing effort. I have made a conscious effort to make the time for personal development and reflection, building a strong professional network, continually seeking feedback on my performance and level of engagement, all while remaining true to myself and the goals I have set for my career.
