Words to Mentees:

“We are incredible beings. We live in incredible times. That is not the issue. The issue is whether or not we actually believe it.” Hugh Macleod once said this. The issue is whether or not we actually believe it. And I totally agree with him.

Our generation has access to opportunities that were never even fathomed in prior generations. The idea of settling and being thankful to even find work has been replaced with a sense of drive and thirst of creating value that has not been considered before. We live in a time when it is not enough to just have a 9 to 5 job. We question whether or not we feel fulfilled, of value. This is a time where we can really step back and try to understand what our footprint in this world will be. This is a realization that has come to me over the years, but I did not start this way.

Born and raised in Mainland China, I have always wanted to make my parents proud. Growing up, I thrived to be the best at everything, seeking parental pride. At the age of 25, I got my actuarial designation. My parents are finally relieved and happy. However, I did not feel as satisfied as I had imagined myself to be when I first started this path. If anything, I feel more lost. What now? I asked myself. It occurred to me that I have never asked my own heart what I want to achieve in this lifetime or what makes me happy. Instead, I applied the rule of thumb and believed all the various lists I have read, summarizing “the top ranked jobs in North America”. I never questioned this list until now. In another time, this might have sufficed to satisfy ambitious people, but these days, it is fairly average. This is an age for passion! This is an age where we must truly question what value we can add as people.

Throughout my burgeoning career, I have experienced many roles. I believe I have so much to offer and I invite you all to join me on this journey of realizing “passion to action”. We only live once, so let us make it count!

Words to Mentees

I consider myself very lucky on my career path. After completing 6 co-op terms at University of Waterloo, I was given an exciting opportunity to work full-time, while studying full-time before my graduation.  The experience was unique, challenging but rewarding at the same time. I was travelling between Waterloo and Toronto and my normal day starts from 6am to 11pm. It gets crazier when exam period and project deadline come at the same time! There were times I feel defeated, and frustrated, but all the hard work eventually pays off. I was promoted within 6 months into my job and I am proud to say that I love my job.

Everybody is unique, that is why every career path is unique. If you are not afraid to break the rules a bit and go for a non-linear career path. I will help you to achieve that!
