Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    Not everyone understands why you would want to leave the comforts of spend a lot of time advocating for yourself on why you should do this, how it will make you a better person, and the world a better place essentially.

  • How I responded:

    You have a lot of these conversations and it's important to acknowledge that your experience is your experience, but others don't get to have that. I dealt with this discouragement by sticking to my passion for service and ideals, as well as learning about other communities and their interest.
