My father left this earth around my 14th birthday. That experience had a profound effect on my journey in life to the present day. I have always carried with me a sense of pride for my family name, which is why I chose to name my first company, Moody's. I was taught discipline, hard work, and how to provide for myself at a very young age. My father was always pushing me to dream of business ideas as a young child, to break through the barriers holding me from success because of the financial background I was born into. He was an innovator himself always coming up with new ways to fix things and excelling with electronics. The Moody name carries with it the essence of quality and innovation, and I enjoy working tirelessly to live up to the name that I was given. After launching my 1st business over a year ago, I have experienced what it means to stand on my own two feet, your motion being fueled only by the movement you create. It has been tough, exciting, challenging, and rewarding. Now that I have the comfort of my first years experience on my side I am confident that the coming years will continue to give me joy and lessons that make me a stronger and more resilient person.
