1 Learning Target
I intend to learn new skills in order to be more professionally diverse.
Two Companies I Really Admire
I really admire this company because it is one that empowers women and it's founder, Michelle Phan, has proved that with hard work, persistence and passion–your dreams can come true.
I admire Netflix because the video streaming service features shows and movies that are culturally and ethnically diverse. This is a move that media needs to make because of how rapidly the world is changing and it makes it easier to connect to consumers.
Let me tell you about the time I learned to push the limit.
I was a timid college sophomore when I registered for a creative writing course. I hadn't shared any of my creative work prior to this class and was uneasy about sharing for workshop. My professor encouraged her students to submit their work to a publication at the end of the semester and I wasn't sure if my work was ready for any submissions just yet.
Throughout the semester, I had the opportunity to work with many talented writers and they all had one thing in common–they were not only passionate about their work but they were ambitious.
Around mid-semester, I decided that I would work towards a submission. I wanted to push past my boundaries and work past my own apprehensions. I took pride in my work and consciously aspired to produce my best work yet.
This carried through to my various jobs over the years. I highlighted my strengths and worked towards growing in my weaknesses. I constantly set goals for myself and work diligently at doing above and beyond my own expectations. I learned how to be ambitious and that has stayed with me until now.
