"Catch on fire with enthusiasm and others will come for miles to watch you burn."This is the quote that I have tried to live my life by since I was 16. I am passionate about everything I agree to take part in, because that is what I believe brings about true success. My passion for sustainable development truly came to light when I took part in a mission trip to Haiti. It was empowering and invigorating to watch as my knowledge made someone else's life better. I'm passionate about female rights and the idea that a woman should be able to provide for her family. Putting these two passions creates an ideal job for me that I know I could grow and thrive in.
