When you look at my CV it’s pretty messy. Especially if you would see the unedited and unpolished version of it.
My life is a string of interesting opportunities randomly connected, which presented themselves to me often through sheer luck and which took me to truly interesting and amazing places. I often opted to chose the stony path instead of the easy one — knowing that by challenging myself I would find more fulfillment and have more fun in the process.
Straight and narrow paths rarely lead to interesting destinations.
I encourage you, NO — I urge you — to find your path, defy conventional wisdom and do what will fulfill and grow you. You owe it to yourself.
