>> “I think it’s ok to not know exactly what you want to do after high school, I definitely didn’t. I had to take a few years after finishing to figure out what my potential was and what I really wanted to achieve. Now that I’ve got a clear goal in my mind it’s definitely less stressful – but I’m so glad I took the time to think about it properly.”
>> “I’ve got a lot of different interests that don’t seem to fit together to form a perfect career. I think that for me, unleashing my potential is learning how to work with the various skills I’ve got to try and find something that I can really enjoy doing.”
>> “Travelling the world has unleashed my potential. Obviously study is important and I know I have to work hard – but I’ve never been as inspired, excited or open to new things than I am when I’m in a completely new environment.”
>> “Unleashing my potential means pushing boundaries, I love to try different things and to keep challenging myself. I don’t exactly what my potential is, but I’m excited to keep trying to figure it out.”
