Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    I'm so behind everyone else. I can't do this.

  • How I responded:

    After dropping out of college and going back years later, I was older than all of the other students and the people that I was interning alongside. People my age were already mid-level and up employees and I was just starting out. I beat myself up about that and felt like I had come late to the party. I decided to forgive myself and knew that in the end, it didn't matter.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

  • I ended up initially dropping out of college because I was failing and didn't end up going back until I was older. I had to find myself and figure out what I was truly interested in.

  • I've felt imposter syndrome before, mainly in regards to my age in school and getting started in my career later than most people. I sometimes felt like I didn't belong or wasn't doing well. I felt like I should've done this years ago.
