Humans of Nantucket

Rachel Fabiszak

“If you had one piece of advice to give somebody what would it be?”

“That you have to believe in yourself, because that’s where it starts. Once you believe in yourself I think you could really overcome obstacles knowing that you believe yourself to be able to do things like that. To be able to step forward, to be able to accept challenges. To believe in yourself doesn’t mean you won’t fail, doesn’t mean that you won’t make mistakes. You believe in yourself that you’re going to get it done. There will be trials and tribulations and false starts and missed steps. But you believe in yourself that it could happen.”
