Surprisingly, up isn’t the only way one might want to go. There are a million opportunities left, right, and center. #
For as long as I can remember, leadership was the expectation. If you wanted to move up in the world, you had to be a leader: in school, at work, in your extracurriculars. Leadership was the golden ticket, and the more opportunities you took, the closer you’d get to owning the whole chocolate factory.
From a young age, I had my eye out for those golden tickets. Whenever there was a leadership opportunity at school or in my extracurriculars, I would jump at it. As I grew older, work was no different. Anytime I saw an opportunity to show that I was leadership material, I would tackle it.
