If so, you are not alone.
Ever since I was a young girl in Vietnam, I was shy and sometimes felt invisible. There were times when I felt intimidated by others’ social strengths while neglecting what could make me stand out from the crowd. From education to career, I didn’t mind having my path laid out for me.
Until one day…
I decided to leave behind my stable management job and said goodbye to my family and friends to start over in Australia.
Everybody talked me out of this. My family said it’s too risky to start a new life abroad, especially for an introverted girl like me. My friends even told me it’s totally insane to leave such a stable and fancy job title I had at that age to start from scratch again. Some were worried that it would be impossible to get a job in my major in such a worldwide competitive environment like Australia.
But I decided to listen to what my heart felt right and do what I ever wanted to do…
Even though I was not a big big girl…I still wanted to take my chance to choose my own path and define myself in such a big big world.
