… “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
– Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher from the 6th century B.C.E.

Today’s Tuesday Reading is an essay by Amanda Winegarden, a Security Risk Analyst in the University Information Security Group at the University of Minnesota. She is a new alumna from the recently graduated MOR Lead From Where You Are Program at the University of Minnesota. Her essay first appeared as a program reflection earlier this year.
