Biggest hurdle you’ve overcome?
My greatest hurdle was getting over my self-consciousness and quiet nature by memorizing and presenting a speech that I wrote, for an audience at the Black History Month Oratory Competition. It didn’t come naturally to me, but with practice, I was able to make my speech energetic and engaging. Though I didn’t win the competition, it was an important milestone for me, and it allowed me to grow as a person and public speaker.
What are your plans for the future?
Pursue a Master’s Degree and later, a PhD to specialize in Toxinology.
