Turning Adversity Into Positive Career Traits Turning life's challenges into fertilizer for our dreams

Each of us has our own story. Our own struggles. Our own victories. Our own purpose. My purpose is to serve, encourage, and empower others. Ideals that have been passed on from generation to generation, redefined by my experiences and cemented in my heart from the joy of triumphing over adversity. The workshop Turning Adversity Into Positive Career Traits takes you on a personal journey of belittlement, self-doubt, cultural reaffirmation and embracing YOUR uniqueness.

"Authenticity has become the gold standard for leadership." - Harvard Business Review

Have you ever worked hard for something - admission into a school, an award, or a promotion? And told you received the recognition because you are a minority? This is painful and demoralizing. I am a minority! I realize that anyone who has ever accomplished anything of significance is a minority. One person with courage is a majority. The workshop focuses on honoring your past, navigating through life's challenges and triumphing over adversity.
