You need to figure out who you are and what you want to give to the world. Then you can figure out what you need to get there.

My road in life has been direct.
I was born and raised in the Bronx by my mother—my father wasn’t around for much of my life.
My first job was working at a golf course, where I realized early on that I really enjoyed being of service to others and was actually sought after for those positions.
From there, I utilized my network to find a job as a personal assistant, which was great until my boss asked me to manage her personal expenses—I realized I needed to step back and learn those skills.
I attended Year Up’s workforce development program in financial operations but got an internship in IT QA.
It wasn’t my area of expertise but I relied on my confidence and support network to succeed.
At Year Up, I realized that the skills I developed as the oldest of four siblings in a single-parent household could translate to marketable job skills, like record retention and asset management.
Halfway through the program, I found out I was expecting, so I took a short break to have my baby before going back to school.
After completing my internship, I landed a full-time position at JPMorgan Chase as a senior administrative assistant and eventually moved up to a senior executive assistant position.
