When it comes to finding a career that’s right for you and good for the world, you have to know your strengths. A key to the success of our Echoing Green Fellows, for example, is their ability to uncover and focus on what they rock at. (They often fill in the holes in their expertise by supplementing them with talented people on their team.) It’s a simple formula for impact. With that in mind, we want to know, what are you good at?
This question is really hard for me to answer because I feel like there many things that I am good at that would not help anyone. But to answer this question honestly I would say that there are a few things that I am good at. I am really good at anything that has to do with music. I have been really quick at picking up a new instrument and I would say that I am a pretty good singer. I am also really good at languages. I speak four languages so you can say that I am a linguist and should be able to pick up other languages pretty easily. I am also a problem solver, when I see something wrong I would not stop until I am able to fix it. I am also a servant at heart. I find myself being most joyful when I am serving someone and I know I made their days better because of the work that I did for them. I am also someone who likes to encourage people. I think a lot of people go through their lives hoping someone would notice something good about them and see the good things they do. So if someone is doing something I love to show them that I can see they are working hard and that they should keep up the good work. A word of affirmation here and there has never hurt anyone. Finally, I think something I also do well is love people. I know this probably ties into the service part but I have always had a heart for people and when I care for somebody I usually tend to really care for them.
