Transforming the world through each sphere of society
What do you enjoy most about work?
Working with people who are passionate about what they do is a refreshing aspect of work. I am really grateful for the people around me who are willing to guide me and show me the ropes. I also really love seeing how what I do can generate positive impact in both my clients but also the community.
What is a challenge or difficulty you face at work?
A big struggle is definitely the feeling of inadequacy and feeling like I do not deserve to be where I am. I struggle a lot when I look at other people who are so much more skilled and deserve to be where they are. It’s also difficult since I lack knowledge in some areas and it can feel overwhelming to have to catch up with all of them.
How do you see that the Gospel is or could be transforming your sphere, industry or workplace?
I see how people are increasingly caring more for the community. Beyond just generating income, people are increasingly trying to create positive impact and making the community around them a better place. I also see especially in the midst of COVID how people value community and are more willing to share more than just the regular stuff.
How do you think you or others in your field can shine the light of Christ in your sphere?
There is a stigma that people in my industry only care about money or are prideful. But I am praying for more and more people who are able to bring light into those places and show love, care and compassion not just for themselves, but for others.
What is one piece of advice you would give to those that will enter the workplace in the future?
Be confident in who you were made to be. This is something that I still struggle a lot with, but being confident in who you were made to be allows you to make decisions that are not based on what others think, popular opinions or chasing after fickle things. It frees you up to do things you were created to do and it allows you to make so much more impact when you know where you belong and what you are called to do.
