There is a quote by Maya Angelou that has shaped my perceptions about work/accomplishment. She said, “You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Do not make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.”
I am humbled to have won the recognition of “Most Informative” for my poster at the Florida Public Health Association today. I did not aim to win anything; I simply wanted to create awareness about helpful/effective public health programs that are tailored to the IDD population. In the process, FPHA recognized my poster as being the most informative. Very well—I am honored, and I will continue to do what I love to do.
Thank you FPHA.
