Oftentimes, what we want to do is not the same as what is expected of us. In order to have a fulfilling life, it is important to listen to your own voice and to pursue your passion, regardless of what others think. Though obstacles along the way may slow this pursuit, your inner voice is impossible to be silenced with hope and perseverance.

Mrs. Monika Samtani is well-known in the D.C. area for her accomplishments in the fields of market media and broadcast journalism.
