Opportunity means being given a seat with decisions makers and being equally valued in that space. It is having room to expand and exercise my capabilities.

“Opportunity never knocks. It hangs thick in the air all around you. You breathe it unthinking, and dissipate it with your sighs.”
― Roy H. Williams

    I also love this quote Brittany! My favorite aspect of Public Allies so far is that I feel like my opinions are valued and respected…and that my fellow Allies, supervisor, and coworkers EXPECT me to contribute effectively.
