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?

What a great question! I hate answering questions about myself because I do not like to draw attention to myself, so I will answer this question concisely and frankly.

I am best at maintaining calm in the middle of a crisis, playing the mediator, and dealing with authority.
I am best at being an anchor for my friends and family.  I hold an optimistic and positive worldview that never wavers so my close ones turn to me when they need a reassuring smile or encouragement to carry on.  I have an internal moral compass which compels me to speak out and act against injustices.  Injustice ignites my passion, when I am passionate I am unstoppable. I am good at analyzing the root of a problem and then presenting that problem, with a solution to an authority figure when I know I have a valid point.  I am best at advocating for justice.
