I have always held the view that it is important to try new things and step out of my comfort zone, and that belief led me to say “yes” to an opportunity to speak to students at Sandalwood Elementary School for its annual Career Day on April 22.

I had never done anything like this before, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. Those jitters were only exacerbated when I walked into the school and saw all of these seasoned professionals seated together inside. I felt somewhat at a remove among the career speakers, yet I stood tall and tried to maintain confidence on my way to the classroom that I was to be based in.
