About the Author: Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, Illinois, Orlett Pearson McCall’s parents raised seven children. Growing up, she always dreamt of success or at least living a life she thought was successful. So when someone would try to shatter her dreams, she did not let them sway her based on her mother’s words, “You can be whatever you want.” Her words were ingrained in her mind. As a result, she set goals allowing her to hone her leadership skills, and those qualities assisted her in endless professional opportunities.

As a woman, people have told me that I took a job that should belong to a man, and with that, I still laugh. No matter your background, I believe many of us must work harder than men to prove ourselves.
Dr. Evelyn Burrell Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist
As a black doctor, you face challenges, and as a woman, it is hard to be taken seriously as a doctor. It seems difficult for people to call me a doctor.

Once you achieve your goals, you must find a way to give back to your community at large. You must encourage, support, and motivate someone else along the way who may need to be inspired.
