The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.

Norris went through what almost every college student goes through: uncertainty and indecision. During college, she was studying math because she wanted to be a math professor as her future carrier. She changed her mind as her dad convinced to study another carrier that would bring her a better future, so she stated majoring in Finance. Why Finance? According to Norris because it was one of the “hot jobs” by the time.  Nowadays, she works for something totally different from what she studied. She is on top on her game because she went in search for a job that she liked. She turned herself into a proactive person. Learning by her own guided her to become what is now a successful working woman.

“Take initiative; be on top of your game.”
