How has your life experience made you the leader you are today?

It started when I was a little girl. I am the oldest of five children. My life changed dramatically when my mother suddenly had three more children when I was eight, nine and 10. I took on the role of baby sitter and was deemed my mother's assistant in order to keep order in the household. Because of this, I had many responsibilities at a young age. For years I thought it wasn't fair but then I realized that out of that experience, and with so much responsibility as a small child, I was able to develop the skill sets that I have today.

My mother and father always believed that I could do anything. Through their parenting and my own experiences, I have learned that regardless of the issue or problem at hand, I can always get to the other side.
