Q: Why do you do what you do? What motivates and inspires you?
A: As an attorney, there are many opportunities to continue learning, giving and growing within the profession. We also have the ability to make a big difference in people’s lives, which is very rewarding. There have been many people who have positively impacted my life, which is why I’m a big believer in giving back. I remember, there was a man who gave a free speech at my high school about how to get into and pay for a good college education. Without his guidance, I wouldn’t be where I am today. And without my grandfather working hard to save enough money to bring my three brothers, mom and me to the United States, I wouldn’t even be here, answering questions for Bethesda Magazine.
Q: What advice would you give to yourself as a young professional?
A: I would tell myself to always have faith and understand that everything happens for a reason. With time, obstacles and challenges will turn out for the best. I can’t think of a single stumbling block that didn’t turn out for the best. I would also tell myself to live in the moment more and to appreciate the little things.
Q: What is the most important lesson you have learned during your career?
A: That in order to keep growing as a person, it’s important you face your fears. It’s scary, but most of the time everything turns out just fine. You learn what to do—or not do—in the future.
