One thing that continues to stick out to me about this chat is that... We all want more for our lives, but... to get more we can't sit around and wait for others to give us more--we must choose to not be victims of our circumstances and learn to show up for ourselves (even in hardship). In this conversation with Dr. Shameka N. Stanford, the power of people believing in you, pursuing higher education (and lessons on student loans), owning your truth, being unashamed of who you are, and the importance of celebrating yourself and your accomplishments.
