We asked rising stars from the community to open up to us about their end goal. We asked them where they want to be, professionally, by the end of their careers and have shared some of those responses below.

Tiffany Mendelson | Health and Lifestyle Coach

If you asked me this 10 years ago I thought I would graduate college, settle down, find a “job” and be happy. If you came to me 5 years ago I would tell you that I only want to see how far I can go, which remains the same to this day. I have learned to live life as a journey. In the past 5 years I found my passion in, health, helping others and personal development to inspire others to unleash their potential. And as I progress through life, I only peel away the layers of who I once was in order to expose the deepest, truest part of me. I want to see how far I can go. I turn inward everyday and tune into my emotions, thoughts and feelings that guide my everyday choices to be the ultimate authority of my body and mind. I was once told that you can coach, lead and help others as far as you are willing to go. In my Health and Lifestyle Coaching Business, while maintaining my triathlon lifestyle and working my day job overseeing the state, I am pushed on a daily basis to be the best person I can be.

Quinn Woodard | Author | Speaker | Engineer

When I think of my end goal, for me it’s simple. It’s not a financial goal, it’s not a target related to sales, but all about making direct impact. Making an impact in the lives of children. For me, this will be a perpetual goal. One of my favorite books is The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore. A quote from the book reads, “When it is time for you to leave this school, leave your job, or even leave this earth, you make sure you have worked hard to make sure it mattered you were even here.” It’s a quote that has stuck with me and it serves as a reminder to work hard, give my all, and be of service to others.

Armstrong WW | Musician & Music Entrepreneur

By the end of my career, I’ll be a musician that has inspired the next generation of creatives globally. I believe that is my obligation because there are musicians who inspired me, and it would be wrong to go on living without re-paying that favor to the future of music. Realistically, the end of my music career will be the day that I leave this earth, so until then my goal will always be to expand and use my knowledge to free peoples minds. Read more>>

Chloe Diaz | Law Student, Influencer, & Nonprofit Founder

My goal is to write progressive policy that reduces harm done onto marginalized communities, maintain my nonprofit—URMentor—dedicated to bridging the gap between first-generation undergraduate students of color and law school, and continue building my online presence on TikTok and Instagram so I can bring awareness to WOC’s experience in the legal community.
