Looking back on it – it wasn’t how I thought it was. I think I just kind of drifted unawares into my career choice. The randomness of an intern acceptance progress. What my friends were doing. During all of my five years of studies, I don’t think I really questioned it.
What did I want to do?
I wanted to simply keep my options open – and finance is a pretty good way of doing that. As they say, “everyone from a mining company to a model agency needs finance” so you go down that road. But it isn’t really a road of believing in yourself. It is a road of not backing yourself.
If I had backed myself, I would have done writing or computer science. But I didn’t so I chose finance.
And now begins the process of starting again.
