Your goals for EAPrep and your students: My goals for my students is to teach them that they can truly accomplish any goal they want, no matter the circumstances. I try to teach them how to find different approaches to different situations, rather it’s in class or in their daily lives.
No – one gets an iron – clad guarantee of success. Certainly, factors like opportunity, luck and timing are important. But the backbone of success is usually found in old – fashioned, basic concepts like hard work, determination, good planning and perseverance.
Personal hero and why: I have been blessed with an abounding support system of family and friends throughout my life, each of whom have special places in my heart and are each a hero to me in their own way. My mom established the foundation for who I am today. Her unyielding strength, support and love has encouraged me throughout my life and she continues to be a blessing and has had the biggest impact on my life. I hope one day to raise my children as she raised my sisters and me.
What is your greatest strength? I believe I am incredibly resilient. I accept that life is full of challenges and strive to keep an open mind and am willing to adapt to change. Some of the strongest and most successful people I know possess this trait and I know that it has been a driving factor in my life thus far.
