What’s a challenge you’ve faced and how did you get through it?

Moving away from home was a big challenge. It was never on my radar, and I have actually been against it for some time. The farthest I had ever considered moving was Atlanta. However, the opportunity at Twitter was presented to me, and I realized I could not ask God for Grace and opportunities then question them when they came. So I took the leap to grow professionally and personally.

What’s something you’ve done that you’re really proud of?

I’m extremely proud of my resilience — that no matter what occurs, I keep going, find a solution, and stay positive.
