I was 9 or 10 when my dad told me I was too young to play basketball next door with the teenagers. There was no park nearby and we didn’t have a basketball hoop, so that meant I couldn’t play basketball at all, right?

No. I just built my own basketball hoop. I used a 4x4 as the post, laid 2x4’s flat and nailed them together to make a backboard then used a handsaw to cut a 5-gallon bucket in half for the basket. I was even able set it at a height that I could dunk on!

Why am I telling you this?

While these days I've traded in the basketball for running shoes, I think this story perfectly captures who I am. I'm the kind of person that, at 10 years old, built a basketball hoop when I didn't have one. I’m the kind of person that, at my first office job, got a $3/hour raise and promotion my third day on the job. I'm the kind of person that passed 2 securities license exams in 4 months when the normal expected timeframe is 6 months, per license. I'm the kind of person that went from the reception desk to Director of Operations in three years.

I’m the kind of person that works hard but doesn't take myself too seriously, that is always willing to help a teammate, that laughs at myself when I fall walking up the stairs, that sees the glass half full, that gets excited about learning and shares my enthusiasm for life!
