So obviously I was exposed to her at a very early age and I was fascinated. It was not just her but an entire family of Nobel Prize winners… She was a great role model in the space to show that, you know, who can tell me I cannot do it?
These are your barriers, these are not my barriers. As long as I don’t buy into them and as long as I don’t accept that these challenges that you put in front of me are not for me to overcome… that’s where things end. But, if I dare to challenge those, if I dare to be brave and go for it because I have that passion, because I have that dream well then, here you go….” A dear Soul Sister who radiates hope, energy, optimism, resilience, grit and a can-do spirit that uplifts us All.
