I loved your book! What is one success secret you didn't mention in your book but can share with Levo members?
One secret that I didn't share has to do with networking. In my new work life I've been doing a lot of networking and I came up with this formula: Contact PLUS Curiosity = Opportunity. It's not enough just to say hello to people or introduce yourself and give your spiel. It's critical to LISTEN. Ask questions. Let your mind snag on what someone says. That's what so often leads to ideas worth exploring, insidery-info, or just a real way to connect.

I've thought about moving to DC, this article was a great way to see what it's really like to work in politics as a woman. It's still something I'm interested in, but it's good to have some insight into what it's like for women who are there now.

Is there a particular moment or set of events in your life that led you to be interested in moving the "marginalized to the mainstream?"
As a woman and person of color I have had my fair share of incidents where clearly my gender and/or race were challenging for individuals to deal with. At first I passed these off as personal issues but realized that there are structural challenges in our systems that cause the "less than equal" environment for women, people of color and many others. Recognizing these institutional barriers existed made me want to fight for the most vulnerable and marginalized communities. If change could be made for these communities, then all communities could thrive. More recently my desire to "mainstream the margins" is connected to the demographic shifts taking place across the U.S. The rise in women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals and the like requires a new way of thinking about "minorities" and the "marginalized." In order for our civil society to be successful, we need to embrace everyone as equal. Therefore moving the marginalized to the mainstream for the sake of identity recognition, civic participation, having a voice and leadership is an important step in honoring the values of democracy that are core to American values.

There never seems to be enough time in the day! What productivity tip works for you?
OK, first of all, you must know that my first degree is in Industrial & Systems Engineering which is all about productivity! And, I am a natural planner, so here are a few of my tips: I have an old fashioned calendar that I use to record everything! It's great to have something physical that you can glance at any time and any where. I also create several electronic calendars (one for work, one for personal and one for my kids' activities) on iCal. Finally, for the long range things, as an engineer, I actually do an old fashioned gantt chart. I love it!

Recent graduate - how can I continue to develop both professionally and personally beyond work duties?
Any type of charitable work is also a great way to keep growing. It is an excellent way to develop more team working skills, problem solving and collaboration. Find something you have a passion for. Even just a few hours a week will be good.

As a college grad is it okay to mention high school achievements such as class president and editor in my resumes or is it juvenile?
So your resume is your way of selling yourself. As a potential employer, we're looking for experiences that can translate into the role that we're hiring for. When hire I talk about the "how" rather than the "what" of a candidates potential. For example: Am I hiring for someone that works with clients - how can they show that they can work with a variety of personality types (Class President is the example here)? This is a "HOW" connector. You know how to use a certain type of software like excel is a "WHAT" connector. I certainly would question the content if it was the ONLY thing connecting your experience to the role but if it's additive I think it's fine. Job after this one. I'd leave it out. You should have work experience now. Go be awesome!

How have you used social media to elevate your career?
Social media is a unique way to connect not only with R29 readers but with brands as well. I think the more they know about you (the real you) the more readers can give you honest feedback and the more brands can provide products that are in line with your brand. That said, I don't have a social media game plan in terms of elevating my career, I've simply tried to be my self on twitter and instagram so that any outcome is directly in line with who I really am — no surprises. Having a presence is definitely important. I'm not sure it's helped elevate (or maybe it has and I just don't know it) but it definitely maintains relevancy. Follow me!
