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 am good at vividly painting pictures in my mind. Although these pictures may often represent anxious thoughts, or be my window of escape from unpleasantries in the world around me, I create alternate visions that feel as real as the world around me. I am, and have always been a dreamer. I am also an eternal optimist. I firmly believe that every experience that we have was meant to happen for a very specific reason. With that in mind, I always look for the sweetness that is knowledge in every situation. If you have a positive outlook on life, you are always ready to make the most of any situation. We only have one life to live, so why not soak up all the sun and reap all the sweetness there is to reap?
