The quote, “It always seems impossible until it’s done,” from Nelson Mandela gets Tama through the times when a particular task feels like it can’t be conquered. “I like to think of how great it will feel after I’m finished,” she says. “Accomplishment is one of the best feelings.”
Tama will never be accused of not respecting her elders. In college she started a program called Adopt a Grandparent that paired volunteering students with elderly residents at a nursing home. The students would visit their resident and exchange life stories. Tama believes that you can always learn something from someone with more life experiences and the youthful energy of the students always brought smiles to the residents’ faces.
