There are a lot of factors to the success of any individual. While many people may think that success depends mostly on the cards that one is dealt, there are some people that show that one of the few things that people need in order to succeed is passion. One also has to have a sense of purpose and a vision. These types of people tend to go far compared to people that were born at an advantage but have no drive to succeed. As a matter of fact when one has the passion and the energy, then she is going to make a huge difference in the lives of the group that she chooses to serve.
One example of such a person is Andrea McWilliams. She has held plenty of offices because she has wanted to fulfill a vision of a better world for people. This is a far cry from people who get into office for reasons that have nothing to do with the people. However, Andrea has looked at some of the deepest issues that people are faced with when it comes to health and society in general. Therefore, she has held events for different nonprofits such as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Andrea has also won plenty of awards for her services. For one thing, she has won the Woman of Distinction award in 2012. She has served on the board of many nonprofit organizations. One of the factors that she has looked at are the type of people that are at a disadvantage. She understands that life tends to be rather cruel in the way that it can change for the worse on some people. This is one of the reasons that she has also done everything she can to work with children.
