    You can't coordinate nouns whose meanings are in such different fields. Susan’s determination and hard work during those rough times has really paid dividends / brought her her just rewards. Jan 4, 2015 at 15:33
  • Can't think of something to exactly fill the blank, but maybe: Susan's struggle... was vindicated by the quality of her speech Other possibilities with some rearranging: 'justified', 'ratified', 'ROI' (if you're feeling MBAish), 'confirmed'.
