The two GIRL Career Exploration workshops I had the pleasure of attending opened my eyes to the world of opportunities out there for young women. Not only was I able to network with some amazing career pioneers and girls just like me, but I was also able to learn about myself, what I really want to do in life, and the many paths I can take to pursue my passion. I learned that no matter what our passion is, how many others we may have, or how many times they might change, there’s virtually nothing that can stop us from pursuing that. And with the right resources, we can mold our careers into how we choose in order to impact the world.
To top it all, I was given some great tips and guides on how to write a college application essay, build a resume, and even start a podcast. Thanks to these workshops, I am more equipped to start on the career path of my choice. I don’t quite know my true passion I want to chase yet. But at least, when I find it, I’ll have the good running shoes to go after it!
