How to you fight for your dream in spite of the challenges? How do you use the obstacles as motivation? How can you turn roadblocks into new paths to success?
In this episode, Emmeline and Dr. Mona Jhaveri tackle these questions and more. Mona is a research scientist with a degree in biochemistry who began her career in science by working on a cure for cancer. Her discoveries led her to start Foligo Therapeutics, Inc.--a biotech start-up designed to bring cancer treatments to the masses. After challenges in funding made it difficult for her to bring treatments to patients in need, Mona started Music Beats Cancer, an organization designed to help crowdfund products introduced by new biochemical research. Here, she shares how obstacles inspired her to change paths, how her desire for positive change has deepened over time, and how she's more motivated now than ever.
