I think it's up to us as individuals to really determine how far are we going to be willing to push ourselves, and what are we willing to risk.

Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Started volunteering with Liberty in North Korea (LINK) the year it was founded.
She was out of college and working in advertising, but she felt something was lacking.
Her volunteer work with LINK started pulling at her so much that she couldn't focus on her job; quit to join LINK fulltime.
Feels like she was in the "unique season" of her life where she had no baggage, could take that risk and jump ship.
Says she's not cut out in her position, she's way under-qualified, has no experience in policy, but she's "here for a reason" and that's what counts.
For a while, she had to waitress to support herself while she volunteered at the nonprofit, but she stuck it out.
She gets frustrated, tired, stressed, but she's never said she hates her job because she feels it's a privilege for her to help others.
As a second-generation immigrant, she feels pressure to succeed, but this also drives her to give back.
