Who’s opinion are you usually seeking when asking for advice? As a female myself, this is not to degrade my own gender, but to rather give an insight on my personal experience with receiving successful advice and opinions, some that have helped strengthen my strategic and logical thinking today. It’s important to understand who we are asking for opinions, because often times, many people have a personal bias and this will cloud their ability to answer with clarity and truth. So here is why I typically ask my close male friends for advice… Continue reading “Why I Ask Men for Advice”
I am a firm believer that our success is a reflection of our consistent everyday habits. Some of these habits are as simple as having the discipline to make our bed every morning, exercising once a day, or maybe even meditating. Regardless, I believe the foundation of success stems from our discipline and how well we push ourselves to do so consistently. Often times, I am asked how I manage to maintain such an active healthy lifestyle and I always bring it back to the habits I incorporate each day. With that, I’ve decided to share five of my consistent everyday habits. Continue reading “My Consistent Everyday Habits”

So it’s almost the end of June and that means two more months till all recently graduated high school seniors head off to their first year of the “best four years of their life”. This topic is something I wish I could’ve told myself prior to beginning college, but as a rising college Senior, I am glad I have the knowledge now to share with those who are about to begin a new journey in their life.
For most of us, we typically live and grow up in the same hometown from the minute we were born. We have attended elementary, middle school, and high school with most of the same people and it has always felt comfortable. But now, most of you will embark on a journey in a completely new environment, perhaps even a new state like I did, surrounded by completely different people. I will admit, when I was 18, I didn’t really give this a second thought because I truly felt ready for this change in lifestyle and environment. However, there are a few things I wish I could have kept in mind as I entered this new reality and I’ll explain why. Continue reading “My Advice to Incoming College Freshmen”
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.
