Terri Lyne Carrington
Although Terri Lyne Carrington appears to be modest and shy (as described on the previous page), at heart she has a strong need to shine and be the center of attention. She is very self-conscious and self-critical however, and she often shies away from the limelight. Her dilemma lies in the fact that she wants to take center stage, but doubts her abilities. Terri Lyne Carrington needs to avoid being overly critical of herself and to practice hard at whatever she does so that she feels fully confident.

Carrington's strengths are her zest and love for life, her creative power and her warm and generous heart.
