Our featured #dreamdriver is L’Oreal Thompson Payton, a media relation managers. Listen to her Dreams In Drive episode here.
What stage are you currently in?
Neutral. I’m taking a moment to appreciate where I am now and I’m also in the process of planning and prepping for the Next Big Thing.
What’s your dream?
Right now, I’m working toward becoming the Director of Communications or Media relations for an organization that benefits girls.
What challenges are you currently facing achieving it?
Experience. I’ve only been in my current position as a media relations manager for a year, so there are still lessons to be learned, which is humbling and, at times, frustrating because I want it all and I want it now. But everything in due time.
What keeps you going when you feel like giving up?
The little brown and black girls who feel like they’re not enough. I’ve been there and I know what it’s like. No girl should ever feel that way.
