Robyn says…

I keep the words of Nelson Mandela close to my heart, “There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires.” This motivates me to have the determination to overcome personal barriers and to motivate others to not let life challenges impede their path to success.
