I'm currently going through a disappointing time with my job and I keep her in mind of a good example when it comes to " accept, improve and determine your goals". Being turned down hurts, getting back up is hard. And she did it very elegantly.
Not trying to but somehow succeeding. She can take whatever picture she wants, the crime is fully with the other party. And if she was indeed punished for this issue by DCC leadership they should be fired on the spot. Luckily where I'm from they would be as what they did is against the law.
