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?
I’m best at being me, knowing me. I am passionate, dedicated, hard-working, intelligent, loving, mature, afraid of settling and clowns, slightly OCD, and incredibly optimistic about the world and hopeful in humankind-admittedly, sometimes naively so. And I am very much okay with this. I know that I have a lot to offer and intend to use my talents to “save the world,” as cliche as that sounds. I know I can do it. As Mark Twain stated, “the two most important days in your life and the day you are born, and the day you find out way.” I found out why a while back. After all, I’m best at being me, knowing me.
