Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Parents:

    You cannot quit your job and move to California. It is too far from your family. You will miss important events. How will you find a job, where will you live?

  • How I responded:

    This was risky and I will admit that. I had saved a lot of money over the past year living at home, and was confident this was what I wanted to do. I did not plan on being out there forever and understood it would be hard being so far away. I told myself that if I did not find a job after three months I would move back home. I networked like crazy and found a great job for my two years there. My family was able to come visit and see what a great place San Diego was.

  • I had little money saved for college. I worked 20 hours a week during school and 40 hours in the summers to pay for my schooling. I also made sure to apply for any kind of aid possible.
