Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    I was working on a project with the chief nursing officer. She wasn't having a good day and I had a miscalculation for a project. When I went to own up to it, she began talking about finding a different opportunity that might work best for me.

  • How I responded:

    To me, it kind of fueled me to wanting to learn more and simply gain more knowledge. I would advise others to try and dig into the criticism more. Try to understand who it is giving it to you and why they are giving you this advice. Ultimately, you should do what you feel is the best path forward for yourself and tap into that criticism. I think you just take it, learn from it, and move forward. We all make mistakes.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

  • There were times where finances were tight for my family. In college, I remember taking 16 units a semester and working 4 jobs to try and limit as much student loan debt. I would highly encourage anyone not to come out of college in a lot of debt.
