The Greatest Influence

Nov 30, 2022

“Parents are the ultimate role models for children. Every word, movement, and action has an effect. No other person or outside force has a greater influence on a child than a parent.” – Bob Keeshan

From being the first person in his family to attend college, to one of the first Black Journeyman at General Motors, my dad had significantly impacted how I see, interact, and show up in the world. My dad is a fastidious and determined worker.  He puts his all into whatever he pursues.  With him as my example, it is no wonder I’ve had the trajectory in my career that I’ve experienced.  My many fellowship pursuits, career choices, and the work I pursue in those careers is all due to my father.  He instilled in me to be a hard worker, stand up for those who are most impacted, and be true to my word.  He demonstrated to me that I could be the best by being true to myself, consistently building strong relationships, and showing up every day ready to take on challenges. I saw from an early age his ability to both pursue his dream and take care of his family.  He never wavered in his commitment to himself, family, and community.  I model myself after him and am honored to be his daughter and call him my role model.  I strive to forge real relationships, to be consistent, and remain true to my word, and that is all thanks to my dad.  It may be cliché to say the person that most impacted my career is a parent, but it is the truth, because of what he instilled in me.
