Favorite Quote & Why?
“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game” – Babe Ruth. This is my favorite quote because if you let fear take over you will miss out on many things in life, things that you may have loved. So instead of letting your fear take over you just keep going and do things that may seem scary because something better may come that you can’t see in the moment because of that fear.

Favorite Quote & Why?
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – MLK Jr. This is one of my favorite quotes because it’s essentially saying you must be the bigger person to bring about positive changes. If someone does wrong by you, the problem will not be solved by trying to do them wrong in return. Growing up, my mama always said “two wrongs don’t make a right” and MLK Jr basically encapsulates that with the famous quote.

“It’s not brave unless you’re scared.” I’ve always admired courageous people who are willing to take risks. As life threw new challenges my way, I found myself stepping up and felt comfort knowing that it’s ok to be scared of new things, but it takes ownership/leadership to move forward despite the fear. It’s actually the best part.
