I don't really have one, but I'm proud of the fact that I earned full rides to Columbia, Harvard, and Tufts.
Who or what is your inspiration in life?
My mentor and friend Susan Shin, a successful businesswoman and attorney in NYC. You would never know the struggles or experiences she has had in life by looking at her. Not only is she one of the most talented people that you could meet, she is also one of the kindest.
