NOTES ALONG
MY JOURNEY

"The beautiful thing about living your truth is that there is no right or wrong. It's your truth. How you express it is where the choice comes in to play."

New View with Santasia Hill

TDR:  What issues are you most passionate about in your community?

Santasia: Credit improvement and credit awareness. We as people tend to want to change everything around us and about us. But neglect credit improvement and credit awareness; to secure a better financial future.

TDR: What are most of your philanthropy efforts typically directed towards serving?

Santasia: Most of my philanthropy efforts are typically directed towards serving Senior Citizens. One of the first lesson we learn as kids is to share. Everyone has a gift, talent and/or skills that can make a difference for someone. Even if it’s a smile or simply hello, you never know how much of a difference a little gesture can make. I see serving as leaving a situation better than you approached it.

TDR:  How do you define leadership?

Santasia: I define leadership as communicating a vision to others through trust, commitment, inspiration, and actions.

TDR:  How would you define your leadership style?

Santasia: I would describe my leadership style as a participating leadership style. Whether it be rolling up my sleeves getting the job done along with the team or making the team apart of a decision-making process. I think others respect you and the final decision more when they feel valued.

TDR:  What would be the most painful lesson that you've learned in life that has helped you become who you are today?

Santasia: The most painful lesson that I've learned in life that has helped me become who I am today is confusing complacency with contentment. I didn't know the two apart in my career, or my personal relationships. I ignored my drive to move and make changes.

TDR:  What would people be surprised to know that you had to overcome?

Santasia: People would be surprised to know that I had to overcome self-esteem issues. Growing up I was remembered as “the girl with the freckles”. After a few years working in Dermatology, I asked one the doctors if there was something to remove my freckles, he told me laser and agreed to give me the procedure. Needless to say I didn't get the procedure because it would have taken away what GOD intended for me to have. As the adult I am today, I have no problem being remembered as “the girl with the freckles”.

TDR:  Name 3 leaders that you look up to. 

Santasia: 3 leaders that I look up to are Dr. Raschondrius Burnett, Angela C. Kenmegne and Dr. Carl V. Washington.

TDR:  Name 3 of your favorite books.

Santasia: 3 of my favorite books are Law of attraction by Michael Losier; The Secret by Rhonda Byrne; and The Bible.

TDR:  What is your advice for emerging leaders?

 

Santasia: Create your own way to success; there's no BLUEPRINT or GUIDE.

TDR:  Complete this sentence…5 years ago I was…

Santasia: 5 years ago I was formulating my goals and dreams but afraid to act on them. Therefore I tried climbing the corporate ladder to reach success by "the process" society deemed as the way and pictured success to be.

TDR:  Complete this sentence…5 years from now I hope to be…

Santasia: In 5 years I want to have a thriving Senior Service Agency along with expanding my services to other metro counties in Georgia. Also enjoying life and the legacy I'm building.

TDR:  If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be and why?          

Santasia: Understanding. A person with the power of understanding knows how to empathize, and also how to forgive.

TDR: What are some of your current initiatives people can help you with?

Santasia: Some of the current initiatives people can help me with is sharing my message through social media, the community, inspiration, marketing, and accountability.
