"When I am empowered, I am confident enough to be a unicorn in business and social spaces..."



Voices of Positive Change: “You can’t be what you can’t see” – Marian Wright Edelman

Zahara's Dream Interview with Cheryl Isaac, United States of America


1. How do you start your day to achieve the objectives you have set for yourself?

I start my day by reading a few pages of fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. I also often listen to a motivational podcast or video. Lately, I've added the treadmill to the start of my day and it not only helps with physical and mental energy, but it's also fun because with the iFit app, I work out in my basement while also traveling the world and visiting various landscapes remotely with iFit trainers.

2. What is the best career advice you were given?

I was told by a mentor years ago to leave a job or position better than it was when I came in and the moment I didn't feel as if I was given the opportunity to be the best I could be, to bide my time and move on to something better.

3. What does Empowerment mean to you?

When I am empowered, I am confident enough to be a unicorn in business and social spaces. Empowerment is the ability to grow and learn, to have a voice that is clearly mine; empowerment is when I have the right tools available to me that enable me to become a better version of myself so that I feel emotionally, financially and mentally independent.
