“A lot of people would say triumphs depend on the degrees or accolades you achieved along the way. But to me, triumphs don’t come in a monetary value, an accolade or something physical. It’s the things you don’t see. My biggest triumph is continuing to survive and being able to provide individuals knowledge; it’s being the person I want to see.”
“To be successful, to me, you have to be willing to prepare the next generation. If I feel like I’m wearing a crown, I want to feel like I can take that crown off of me and share that with as many individuals around me as possible.”
“Despite my obstacles—and even my triumphs—at the end of the day, what’s most important is that it’s okay to be me. Each of us have a significant calling, path, or purpose.”
“You can be the best you without throwing other people under the bus. And be mindful that every action you put out has a consequence…No amount of money will equate to what you receive back from what you sow into the universe.”
