It’s important to know where you come from in order to appreciate where you are going.  As an African-American woman, I know that a standard for excellence runs through my DNA.  I can trace this through my ancestors.  I then channel that into everything that I do.  Anything worth doing is worth doing in excellence.  Strive to be better than your ancestors.  And trust me we have some awesome people who’ve accomplished major things in history.  That means we have an opportunity to do major things in the future.
 
Have a blessed day!
