What does it mean to be a great leader?
Being a great leader is about helping other people to be at their very best, providing them opportunities they may not otherwise have, and helping them to meet people that will help them in their lives. Leaders support people with their talents.
Do you feel you're a leader? Why or why not?
I do think that I’m a leader. I have a passion for helping others and want to see them at their very best. I love helping other people achieve their dreams and find a community. When like-minded people support each other, they can be so much more impactful and make a difference.
Tell a story of a time you took the lead -- what was your motivation?
When I moved to Denver, Colorado I decided to found Novel Women with the motivation to help other women connect and build a community to help each other. This is something that I want to pass on to others in hopes that they will pass on to other people. Novel Women is a community of women helping women through an interview format. We collectively help support each other and tell our stories.
