How do you motivate others?
I believe in leading by example. I try to stay positive, keep a balanced perspective, and stay calm—even when faced with extremely difficult situations. As leaders we are always watched, especially by our subordinates. If they can see that I maintain myself as a strong leader, it will help them manage situations with a positive sprit and self-assurance.

How do you give back to the African American community?
I think it’s important to be a great diplomat, to be politically savvy, and to be your authentic self.

What is your favorite quote, and why?
It is from Marianne Williamson: “The past will hurt you not, it is only a memory and only good for bringing us to where we are today.” I like this quote because it reminds me that we should not focus on the past. Oftentimes things which have occurred in the past can bog us down.
