A little introspection...
To me, being successful means...
Being happy with myself and achieving the goals that I have set out for me.
My definition of success has changed over time.
The realization that personal success and happiness comes through reflection and being exposed to different things in life in order to identify what is truly important.
My greatest accomplishment to date and what I’ve learned from it
Traveling and working abroad and returning home. I learned the world is a big place, and there are many ways we can live our lives.
An unexpected event that significantly changed my life and how it impacted me
Not securing a job upon finishing graduate school. I learned not everything always goes as planned even when you do "all the right things." However, there are ways to find opportunity in such situations as long as you're resourceful and open minded.
