This week Katy chats with guest Christine Mafana about her collegehood experience. As ambitious, hardworking, first generation college student, Christine, immersed herself deeply into college life. She shares how she learned self reliance, perseverance, and not taking herself too seriously. Along the way, she also demonstrates how to use adversity and failure to help clarify goals and create a path that aligns with your true self.
This collegehood story teaches students how the shiniest opportunity might not be a good match, how dissatisfaction can ultimately lead to fulfillment, and how even required classes that seem pointless can become invaluable resources in professional life.
Now we want to hear from you! What are your take aways from our chat with Christine?
