Dr. Karen Semien-McBride

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”

This quote has been attributed to Mark Twain, Agatha Christie, Sally Berger, and others. No one knows for certain who actually coined it. But while speakers, coaches, and teachers regularly use it to motivate their audiences, few have actually lived it – and then committed their lives to helping others do the same.

Dr. Karen L. Semien-McBride is one of those few. Her enthusiastic, inclusive, and perpetually positive energy is infectious whether she’s speaking to a group, teaching a class, or coaching a C-Suite executive. But there’s far more to Semien-McBride than just passion and positivity.


Huntley Lawrence

“Are you focused on what you don’t have… or what you do have?”

Huntley Lawrence posed this question last month during his commencement address to more than 200 graduates at Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Queens, New York. He was addressing the specific issues that this class of 2021 has faced over the past year – the impact of hate, racism, and pandemic lockdowns.

Lawrence continued, “What if I told you that no matter where you were born, where you started, where you came from, or how much money you have, you have the opportunity to forge your own path. A new path. A better path.”

Lawrence knows this truth first hand. Raised only a stone’s throw from New York’s famed LaGuardia Airport in Queens, he was fascinated with flying and planes. At an early age, he set his sights on being a pilot. In high school, he attended the aviation program at PS127 near his home where he learned firsthand about flight at LGA and JFK. Even before he graduated, Lawrence passed his written pilot’s test.
