We're excited to present to you Kim Tran, Institutional Sales Associate, living and working in New York, and this week's Woman in ELSA.
What does success look like for you?
I think it's common for people to measure their success by comparing themselves to their peers. For me, I define success by comparing my accomplishments to the expectations that I set for myself. At the baseline, I expect myself to be first and foremost, a good person and to treat everyone with respect and secondarily, to be self-sufficient, independent, and have a good career. I think that I've accomplished those two so far :).
Tell us a story about your grandma or a generation before you that inspired you:
My grandmother on my mother's side had twelve kids and she was able to raise each of them well with the help of my mom who was the oldest sibling. They are both extremely generous, self-sacrificial, and truly, the best cooks that I know (totally unbiased view, of course)! Even during the most difficult times such as during the Vietnam War, both of them demonstrated strength and composure as they were able to look after and ensure the safety of their family.
