Introduce yourself to our audience. Tell us who you are and what you are currently focused on.
Hello - Myra here! I am born and raised from a small town in South Carolina and always had a passion for the arts and making connections with others. I have currently started a new position within Ellevate Network and am excited to meet new faces as I grow into my role. My ultimate goal at this point is to absorb as much as I can and take the opportunity to learn from others within the network.
Tell us about your favorite Ellevate Network memory or success story. Why are you a member?
My favorites success story stems back a few years from now, which was the year of 2014. I made the executive decision to move to Jacksonville, Florida! I didn't know a soul there, nor had a job or place to stay - but I knew that I needed to make the leap of faith to pursue my career and open my mind to new things! I am so proud of myself for following through and really trusting my gut. I was able to make advances on my career and grew personally with new experiences and learnings.
What is your morning ritual?
My morning ritual involves coffee, coffee and coffee! As many can relate, my brain needs a bit of TLC in waking up for the day. In addition, I love to listen to some tunes in the morning to get mood set to take on the day.
What is the best career advice you ever received?
"No one can ever make you feel a certain way without you giving your consent." My dad always used to remind me of this and it has always stuck with me! It really drives in on the accountability we all have in our lives and that we have the power to choose/control our attitudes in any situation. Professionally speaking, this has always grounded me in staying positive and gave me courage to speak up.
