Learnings from 2021

  • Sean, thank you for being my first and best manager, your belief in my impact and encouragement is the reason I am where I am today!
  • Nkechi, I can’t thank you enough for all the mentoring hours over the past year, and for the lessons you have taught me on comparison and impact.
  • Laura, for being the first person to believe in my work to prevent suicide and for her determination in getting my model out there.
  • Esther and Seema, for being my second mothers in Tract and in San Francisco, and for always believing in what my sister and I are doing.
  • Marrisa Mayer’s (Former CEO of Yahoo) framework to making decisions is something that has stuck with me from the first time I heard it. Her framework is to make a decision that 1) has smart people 2) you’re the most unprepared for
  • I was left inspired after reading Naval’s (Angel Investor and Philosopher) book “The Almanack of Naval”, he talked about how life is all about choosing your battles and passion is really just “what you are willing to suffer for”.
