What is your favorite quote or Life Motto?
“To act courageously is momentarily, but regret lasts a lifetime.”
What do you do to prioritize self-care?

I believe that relying on those around you for support is a good thing and not something that a person in a leadership position should feel is backing down. Just as you are caring for those around you. I truly felt throughout my time at Soka that everyone around you also cares for you.
