Best career advice you’ve received: The best piece of career advice I’ve received is to never stop searching for and trying to do what you love. Make having a career that you genuinely enjoy your goal, and take the opportunities that will help you achieve that goal.
Piece of career advice you have for other students: One of the best pieces of career advice I could give is related to a quote by Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Don’t choose to do something because it’s what you think you should do or what you are told you should do. You will be the most valuable to your own life and the lives of others if you do what Thurman advises – you do what makes you come alive.
