Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    You should not leave XXX company for a new job. People at XXX company like you and you are pretty safe from layoffs. Grass is never greener on the other side.

  • How I responded:

    Believe in yourself. Sometimes grass is not greener on the other side, but at least you got to see the other side rather than be limited because you were afraid.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

  • Use it to your advantage. Immigrants have multiple perspectives. You know your culture from where you came from and also know the culture you are currently living. This is an asset.

  • You probably have many pressures to do well and succeed because you are the first in the family to go to college. Embrace and understand how to use that pressure as a positive. You will do well in future to use past experience to help grow in future.
