“I know that I will never have the impact I desire if I don’t push my own boundaries and strengthen my ability to be ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable.’ At the same time, I firmly believe that one must model the behavior one speaks of. I ask myself how can I push my students or my own children to push themselves, to be persistent and resilient if I don’t practice what I preach? I desire to be a Surge Fellow to gain the confidence and executive skills to take my leadership to the next level.”
