What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Since I was a young girl, my mother ingrained in me that kindness is one of the most important qualities a person can possess. She has taught me that while it is important to be intelligent, successful, and pursue leadership roles, that I should use those positions of leadership to uplift others, make them feel genuinely valued, and include them in my journey.
