What are your core values and principles and how have they informed your career?
My core values are the same as the traits I admire and look for in a leader, empathy, passion, and integrity. I have always tried to do what I am passionate about. I am passionate about helping people access learning so they can unlock more opportunities. What I do, I do with integrity because that builds trust.
