What is your superpower?
I am humble and I am constantly learning.
Oftentimes, we become set in our ways. I have been able to renew myself because I listen. Even when I think that I already know what a person is saying, there is always one new bit, a novel nugget of precious information revealed. This is invaluable when you want to grow. Listen twice as much as you speak. It takes humility to learn. At any age and any stage of life.
I also admit my faults. I try to never be wrong and strong. There is valour in recognizing your faults. It means you can do better because you know where you didn’t. Because you admitted your flaws.
That, and I fail well. I came back from incredibly hard knocks and kept going. After I am blown to pieces, I pick myself up. Forward with a broken heart. It’s a double-edged sword because, if you don’t take time to take in your failure, you don’t take time to celebrate your wins either. I also know how to move on when I feel I need to move towards a new learning experience. I have changed lives over and over. I went from a professional dancer, to a teacher, to an academic, to politics, to a performer, to a working mother. My law career began in music, expanded through movies and television to technology and digital arts. There is always more to learn, from the heart, the most.
