Growing up, I found myself drawn to stories about women who weren’t necessarily strong to start off with, but who, after time and effort, cultivated their own sense of purpose and strength.
Remember how I thought I would never get a job because I was terrified of interviews? Well, there’s a reason for that. And last year, I encountered my worst interviewing nightmare.
When I was a kid, I honestly believed that I would never find a job.
My logic was that all jobs required interviews and since I was very shy, I’d never be able to talk to the interviewer.
Fiji, I want to remember…
The fire lighting ceremony and the way the performers kept smiling at each other. I want to remember stumbling across big and small moments of entertainment.
This year I achieved the impossible. I taught myself how to code and landed an entry level job in a front-end development studio. To carry on this tradition, I’m going to do something new again next year, in the hopes that each year I will get to achieve one more drastic and life changing thing.
