Throughout all the things she has endured, she worked hard and kept her mindset on one main goal. “I think everyone has the trait of perseverance; there are a lot of hardworking people I know,” Deardorff said. “I would tell other Lions to set goals for themselves and if they’re really passionate about them, then to not let anybody get in the way.”
