Through running my own business at Southwestern Advantage, I have been able to develop my independence as a young woman. I’ve learned to communicate effectively with a diverse and broad range of individuals with different social backgrounds. Personally, I’ve been empowered to see that I’m more capable than what I’ve been given credit for by others. I have come to realize that what I believe about myself, I will become. I have had opportunities to network with other like-minded professionals and high-achieving young people from around the world. This experience empowers women to believe in our potential, despite stereotypes that may say otherwise. I have learned different perspectives and how to love people unconditionally, to even be accepting of others no matter how they treat me. I have gained acceptance of myself for who I am; and because of that, I can now offer others my selfless attention and service.
