"Being your authentic self is the only way to get ahead because nobody can compete with you when it comes to being you."

I always struggled with wondering if what I was doing was “unique", as in shadowing, doing extracurricular activities, volunteering, and excelling in school.

It took me a long time to realize that these experiences were unique to me! I was the one going through them, I was the one learning from these experiences, and I was the one that would be able to tell others about them. That’s what makes you unique... your experiences, your journey, what you have learned from these experiences, and what you have gotten out of them. ⁣

You are so special. ⁣You are so amazing! So don’t undervalue the experiences you have. ⁣

I learned how to be considerate of others' situations, become open minded, and learned the importance of community.

What is something you learned from your experiences?!
