Grind Before You Shine
Follow Annette...

on a meter-by-meter journey toward her goal—competing in the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games.

With the 2020 Olympics postponed, athletes have to “dust themselves off” and move forward. Annette is seizing the opportunity to train harder, attempting to represent Nigeria in the Hammer Throw competition.

A unique mix of humility and strength, Annette brings world-class determination to her work at Empower as a Search Associate. And she’s unassuming enough to be embarrassed by a statement like that.

She pushes past her limits and teaches us a valuable lesson: we can all break through our boundaries. Do the work, get the reward. Grind before you shine.

Let Annette inspire you the way she inspires us. Pick up today’s heaviness and throw it as far as you can.

Not everyone can be an Olympic hopeful.

But we can all be full of hope.
