“I am passionate about work that has very little reward--no money, no thanks, no "pats on the back" from anyone. Yet, I believe in what I do. I need courage and strength to get through this, to keep my head above the water before I drown. I also know that if I chose a more "rewarded" profession (more money, more support), I would feel as I was drowning in someone else's dream rather than my own. Everyday is a battle for me, learning to swim in my own water.”
