“One of my beliefs is that innovation drives today’s success in all facets of life and that innovation is best backed with confidence and trust,” she said. “Success, to me, is not only driven by hard work and determination, although those are both huge factors. It’s driven by how you value and treat others. It’s having unconditional love for those around you and really caring for them.”
