How I Decided What Kind of Job I Wanted After College

One of the frequent questions I get asked about is how I knew what I wanted to do after college or at least the type of job I wanted to outside of freelancing/business work. I personally believe this topic isn’t discussed (correctly) enough in college and even when having the “post-grad” discussion with parents. Here are my thoughts and my thought process on how I decided what I wanted to do after college… Continue reading “How I Decided What Kind of Job I Wanted After College”

For those of you who don’t know, I’ll be graduating from college (Chapman University) in less than four weeks!

Why I Value Individuality

Why I Value Individuality

Growing up as an Asian American in a predominantly Caucasian community, I already felt an instant difference in individuality based on physical looks. To enhance (or distinguish) my individuality even more, I grew up training and competing in the sport of figure skating, and later on adding competitive tennis to my regime.

Essentially, I was a completely “different” type of girl. Not only was I not Caucasian like everyone else, but I didn’t really participate in any “normal” sports like soccer and lacrosse. Although, I had a great run during my middle school years being on the varsity field hockey and track team. For anyone that is curious, I really loved both sports and if I wasn’t so involved with my two other sports, I would have continued both activities in high school and potentially college. (I ran the 200m and 4×4 relay in track, shoutout to my brother for training me into a wild athlete those years) Regardless, I stood out pretty easily to my peers, which essentially forced me to stand alone as a complete individual at times.  Continue reading “Why I Value Individuality”
