Paying It Forward

About a month ago I had the opportunity to be a panelist for the Health Professionals Panel at my recent alma mater Teachers College .  It was an honor to speak to fellow students and entrepreneurs about my experience in the health and wellness industry.  I was given the platform to speak on how my degree from TC helped to achieve my goals as well as provide guidance and healthpro_2016advice on employment outlook and usefulness of their degrees.

The novelty has still not worn off to be invited to speak on panels about my journey because I know how it felt to be on the other side of the spectrum hanging on the words of experts when I was a student to help create the path that I am currently on today.  I was honored to sit on a panel that provided me the opportunity as well to engage with individuals such as myself that came from a wide-range of health care fields, still traveling on their career paths.

I look forward to these opportunities because I never know who I may touch or influence why telling my story, and hopefully provide that cue or spark to keep someone pushing towards their light.  Sometimes you just need a spark of hope to know that the journey may not be easy, but it can be well worth it in the in.  I pray that I can can be that for someone.

  1. Thank you for sharing. It’s important to all that we both hear and share our stories. We are working to make sense of our surroundings, and the experiences of others help us understand how we show up in different spaces. So wonderful to hear you are impacting others.
