"Yesterday, I turned 25 and got the keys to my first home. Looking back, things didn’t always go according to schedule. In fact they never did. I set high goals and failed and failed. My goal was to go to my dream school, the University of Washington but I was rejected in 2015. My goal was to work at Amazon out of college but was rejected in 2020. My goal was to never pay rent after graduation but I signed my first lease in 2021."

I never gave up my dreams

It was her ability not to give up that finally saw her achieving most of her dreams at a very young age. She said she persisted and refused to quit. She continued her inspiring story:

"But I persisted. I entered the University of Washington in 2017 and graduated in 2020. I began working at Amazon in 2021. And now, in 2022, I’ve bought my first home. What I’ve learned and hope to share is that it’s okay to not meet your perfect timeline and failure can be part of the process."
