      I would say passion, the desire to be a better person in society and contribute to it, curiosity and I need some money so I have to continually be competitive and not be left out in this world

      Good mentorship is important. I had good mentors in high school and at the university. Currently, I have very good mentors in research. I emphasize the importance of good mentorship by a quote from Isaac Newton. “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”

      I think that my faith along with a passion & interest in science has sustained me through many very difficult circumstances. Finding a way to persist in those adverse circumstances is how I have made it to this point..
