Personal and Professional

On an academic accomplishment, I managed to successfully completed by postgraduate study in HRM. On a professional/career achievement, I managed to survive and adapt in one of the undeveloped country in Africa to support human resource function for my Company. This is no a place for anyone especially when you are away from your family which is >10,000 km away and having to endure the 14 hours journey on air and continue for another 4 hours by land. That is something.

Emotional Intelligence

Mastering the ability to think with my head, feel with my heart, and knowing how, and where to draw the line in between. Maintaining my composure has brought on even more awareness, so that I may keep professionally conscious, and dedicated to productivity. My greatest accomplishment of all was overcoming the truth. No matter how unfair it seemed to get, I didn't let it get to me. Having to start out in a world, and have absolutely no resources, no one to help, and two little boys to add to the mix, every odd against me, even had a crazy lady poison me. I accomplish more with one prayer, than I could in a room full of social service reps. I just had to accept what I had and strive for what I wanted, instead of taking what I wanted and struggling to get by, because of it. Success is just as dynamic and diverse as happiness, you will find success as soon as you can recognize happiness.

Visually Impaired Artist

Being born visually impaired is a challenge within itself. However, I taken this disability and turned it into an ability, an ability to become an award-winning artist. I have tried for 18 years to be part of the American Painting House for the Blind art competition and always fell short. In 2009, I managed to enter the competition for visually impaired and blind artists and placed 3rd out of some 400 entries from around the world. In 2010, I entered the competition again and placed 2nd out of some 300+ enteries from all over the world. In 2011, I didn't place but was accepted in the art exhibition among 80+ artists and in 2012, I won 1st place out of 420 entries from around the world. It's having that "Go For It" spirit that keeps me moving forward and not feeling the world owea me something and accepting who I am and focusing on what I can and will be in the future. My goal is to have art shows all over the world.
