Maria Contreras-Sweet has shared her thoughts on public service and goals as administrator at the Small Business Administration in an interview with the Washington Post published Friday.

She told reporter Tom Fox the agency is working to accelerate loan processing for U.S. small business owners and provide aspiring entrepreneurs access to the agency’s programs.

“We also want to make sure that our small businesses are taking part in the global economy,” she added, according to the newspaper.

Contreras-Sweet, who was born in Mexico, explained that growing up with a lack of role models has inspired her to serve in the government.

She told the newspaper she is always eager to move projects forward and try to find a common ground for collaboration in the workplace.

“Leadership is about making sure that others are resourced and able to accomplish what they need to accomplish,” she said, according to Fox’s article.
