Sharing is caring! 176 Views 6 comments A young Dominican woman who set and accomplished her goal of obtaining a doctorate in psychology at the age of thirty sought to motivate young ladies to set goals for themselves and create their own paths.Shani Shillingford graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a PhD in Clinical and Educational Psychology in December, 2011 spoke on the topic “Journey to Excellence” at a Girls Symposium on Thursday.Dr. Shani Shillingford.She admonished the attendees of the need to chose a career path that they enjoy doing.“The first thing you need to do is set a goal for yourself; what do you want to do, what do you see yourself spending the rest of your life doing? Set a goal to do something that you like, something that you love, something that you enjoy doing.”Shillingford explained when she decided to become a psychologist she was bombarded with questions from many persons who wondered why she chose that field as they did not even know what it was about however, she created her own path.“You have to create your own path. The idea of psychologist is Dr Benjamin and the psychiatric unit, no one knew about the other aspects of psychology and I heard that question over and over again; what is psychology but I created my own path.”“I did it my way”, she said encouraging them to do likewise for; “not everyone can be an accountant, lawyer or doctor choose your path, chose what you want to do”.Shillingford also sought to caution them that the path they may chose will not be void of challenges and obstacles but advised, using the lyrics of Jamaican reggae artist Buju Banton,“many see the glamour, many see the glitter but no one knows how hard it is”.“There were days when I really wanted to give up and wondered why did I leave my beautiful Dominica, why am I in the snow, why am I in this place? No food to eat, no means to pay the bills,” Shillingford said in providing her examples of a trying journey.She cautioned further; there will be days when “you’ll be walking around like a zombie; three, four days you haven’t slept because you’ve been up studying for hours for days and there are days when you’ll feel like giving up packing up your bags and going; it’s not an easy path”.Shillingford also addressed the issue of financing which for her was by no means easy.“I spent the first year working three jobs, going from one job to another working midnight to three and trying to study, trying to find a way to pay that tuition bill” she said, “it’s not an easy road but if you persevere, if you keep at it you can achieve your goals”.According to Shillingford, one must also be “flexible; find other options, find other avenues and do what you have to do but most importantly, never give up”.She told the young ladies that they should “always remember that one day things must get better”, to surround themselves with good company, “friends that will encourage you, friends who will stand by you, friends who will help you cry, friends who will motivate you to do what you have to do”.“If you have a friend who is leading you astray; get rid of that friend” she warned, and remember that “nothing is impossible”.Shillingford concluded; “nothing is impossible no matter where you come from, no matter what obstacles may come in your way, no matter what side of the road you may take; remember that nothing is impossible”.Dominica Vibes News Share Tweet LocalNews Set goals for yourself and create your own path by: – March 9, 2012 Share Share

Bengaluru: Describing the Congress-JDS coalition dispensation in Karnataka as a hub of infighting and confusion, BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa Friday expressed doubts over the government’s continuation after the Lok Sabha elections.The BJP leader made the remark in Hubballi when asked about the Twitter war between chief minister H D Kumaraswamy and former chief minister Siddaramaiah on Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge becoming the chief minister. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghKumaraswamy’s remark that Kharge should have been offered the top post long ago had triggered a twitter debate between him and Siddaramaiah, who is also the ruling coalition coordination committee chief. In response to Kumaraswamy, Siddaramaiah had suggested that Kumaraswamys elder brother H D Revanna too was quite capable to lead the state as chief minister. Yeddyurappa said, “Congress and JD(S) have become a hub of squabbling. What will people be thinking when Siddaramaiah says Revanna should be the chief minister and then Kumaraswamy counters him that Kharge should have been the chief minister… It is like betraying the masses.” Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe BJP leader was confident that the people of Kundgol and Chincholi would teach the two parties a befitting lesson for “betraying” them and creating confusion. To a question on the next chief minister, Yeddyurappa said, “The question will arise when the government survives. Future depends on the results of Lok Sabha election and the two bypolls (Chincholi and Kundgol assembly segments). After the election there will be upheaval in politics (in Karnataka). I dont think Congress and JD(S) will continue for long in the government.” Predicting BJPs victory in the Lok Sabha election, Yeddyurappa said Narendra Modi would return as prime minister again and the election results will have a bearing on Karnataka. He said he would wait and watch what changes the Lok Sabha elections would usher in. “We are going to win about 280 to 290 seats (in Lok Sabha). Narendra Modi will 100 per cent become prime minister again. We have the support of various political parties. So, not a single seat we will lose….,” the BJP leader said.
Melbourne: Australia’s ruling conservative coalition led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Saturday made a “miraculous” comeback and is set to form the next government after winning most number of seats in the elections, defying exit polls which predicted a victory for the opposition Labor Party. Australians Saturday voted to elect their next parliament and prime minister, in what has been widely referred to as the climate-change election. After five weeks long election campaigning across the country, around 16 million Australians swarmed to the polling booths across the country to elect the nation’s 31st prime minister.

The poll showed the Labor winning as many as 82 seats in the 151-member House of Representatives, beating the governing Liberal coalition. On Friday, media reports also endorsed Labor Party leader Bill Shorten as the best chance to end a “cycle of instability” in Australian politics.

The Coalition currently holds 73 seats, while Labor has 72. Morrison cast his vote at Lilli Pilli Public School in Sydney while Shorten in Melbourne. Defying the exit polls, the early counting recorded a swing in favour of the ruling coalition, which so far won 74 seats, paving the way for Morrison to become the country’s 31st prime minister. Opposition Labor Party won 65 seats during the ongoing counting of votes. Following this, Shorten conceded defeat and said he would resign as the party leader. Addressing his disbelieving supports here, he said “Without wanting to hold out any false hope, while there are still millions of votes to count and important seats yet to be finalised, it is obvious that Labor will not be able to form the next government. “I called Scott Morrison to congratulate him… wished him good fortune and good courage in the service of our great nation. The national interest required no less,” Shorten said. So far, it is not clear whether the Coalition will govern in majority or will need partnership of independent MPs in a minority.
