WHAT’S MY NAME? DR. CARA EMILIA FALLIS (FORRESTER)WIFE / MOTHER / DOCTOROne of the biggest challenges in my adult life and starting out in my career has been getting out of my own head. When I was a kid, I was repeatedly complimented for my confidence and picked out as a natural leader. I took it for granted because nothing I was doing ever felt like it mattered in the grand scheme—so I just “gave ‘Er”, every time and in everything I did. Then as I grew, I started to “care” more about the endeavors I was setting out to pursue— and the fear of failing or embarrassing myself took over.

To be honest, this question gave me a bit of anxiety. Suddenly I can hear that little voice in my head saying, "What is your story? Do you even have one?" Yup, I'm sure you all know that voice. Fear. Doubt. Insecurities. So what is my story. I'm an athlete. A woman. A daughter. A sister. A friend. A follower. A leader. But I'm more than all that.

Honestly, I don't even know where to begin. I was always so shitty at school. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do in life and that terrified me. The lack of certainty made me feel so insecure that I couldn’t justify my own decisions. I thought about whether I should just listen to my parents and what they wanted for me, but it would be a tug-of-war between playing it safe and not knowing wtf to do.
