~ CARMEN TAPIO PRESIDENT AND
If you could give all human beings one virtue, which would you choose and why? It would be Grace because it is a trait I first recognized in my mother. Her Grace helped me to better understand the Grace of God and that Grace can be a way for all of us. When you were young, what did you most dream of doing when you grew up?
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER NORTH END TELESERVICES, LLC
I didn’t really dream of being any one thing because my parents taught me at an early age that I could do anything I put my mind to. Their confidence in me gave me the confidence to try different things and different paths. My father taught me early to create a life vision for myself and a five-year plan. That plan was more about how I saw my life rather than what I would be.
What event in the past, present or future would you like to witness in person? As I write this the day after election day the event in the past, present or future I would like to witness in person would be the true coming together and healing of America, a return to statesmanship and a focus on liberty and justice for all. For which activity or discipline would you most like to receive a lesson from an expert? To learn to play tennis from Serena Williams.
If you decided to go on a personal pilgrimage of some kind, where would you go and what would you do? I would go to the mountains to be in and with nature and wonder at the darkness and light of the evening sky. What historical time period would you most like to visit? The historical time period I would like most to visit is the Edwardian period. Like a lot of people I was a huge fan of Downton Abbey!
What historical figure would you most like to meet or be mentored by? Abraham Lincoln. I admire his strength, perseverance and conviction.
