This spring, EduDream Co-Founders, Michelle Oliva and Monica Martinez, were invited to meet with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Sitting in a room filled with foundation staff, they sure could have used wisdom from trailblazing women, like Carla Harris. Harris, the Vice Chairman of Wealth Management and Senior Client Advisor at Morgan Stanley, tells women "OWN YOUR POWER". Oliva recounts, "I was shaking like a leaf, wondering if I belonged in that room." As the faces and leaders of EduDream, Oliva and Martinez are forced to address the elephant in the room: imposter syndrome. It's an ongoing process [addressing this issue], but one that they hope will dissipate one day, very soon. "We need Harris' words to seep into our subconscious: 'If you’ve been invited into the room, you belong in the room.' Every time you have a seat at a powerful and influential table, you are being courageous, taking risks and opening yourself to opportunities. At the end of the day, we know our hard work, competencies, and capabilities are our power." Bravo, ladies!
