"Be the difference:" Cecilia N'zaou of Oath London
Oath team members (we call ourselves Builders) are proud to make an impact on the world through media and technology. To demonstrate our commitment to doing our best, each of us takes a three-word oath that captures how we approach our work.
Today we travel to London, England to get to know Cecilia N'zaou, who is a Product Marketing & Demand Strategy Manager for Video in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. She tells us about her oath.
"My oath is 'Be The Difference.' Most of us want to make a difference in our company, in the world, and in our communities, and my oath finds the link between initiating an action and how it affects each of us. It distills how I seek to make a positive impact, and celebrates how each of us can uniquely be the difference in our own worlds.
"This thinking guides my daily life too. I wake up each morning grateful for everything I have: a home, a family, friends, safety, health, and a job I really like. When I follow my passions, whether that's photography, yoga, or traveling, I'm creating that positive difference for myself. As a challenge seeker, reflection is a big part of identifying my next growth opportunity. At the moment I'm into mountain climbing, and it's bringing something new and hard into my personal life.
"I chose this oath because I think we are in a time where being the difference can be difficult to achieve. Creating something innovative, confronting issues like society's biases, or simply being authentic in all situations (especially at work) are all difficult, and worthwhile. Being the difference starts within ourselves, who we decide to be, and hinges most on just taking that first step."
